There are a wealth of trails available for all levels ranging from the officially marked family trails to the more extreme downhill sections and in-between there is a lot of single track to suit all levels. Let’s not forget to mention that you have the South Downs all around you too. Although the maps are designed to help new visitors and even regulars enjoy the forest, the best way is to get guided assistance and you can’t beat a bit of local knowledge. Please visit South East Mountain Biking and they can help hone your skills too.
When we use the forest we have to be mindful that it is regularly used by walkers, horse riders and is an important habitat for wildlife and to the north a special grazing project. The Forest is managed by the Forestry commission and owned by SE Water.
This is by no means an official web site and the maps are only intended as guides and a means to give trails consistent names. There is an active group of people using the trails on a regular basis building and maintaining the trails, most of whom can be found on the Facebook group FristonMTB. There lies the inspiration behind this site as many posts have ended up with discussions about identifying trails. If you want more up to date information then checkout the Facebook group FristonMTB.
