Riding the Kitchener Trail at Sherwood Pines

We uploaded another guide to one of Sherwood Pines Forest Park trails. The video was titled “Riding The Kitchener Trail Sherwood Pines’ Red Route”. The trail is a great cycle route for mountain bikers, we had previously reviewed both the Green and Blue routes in 2015 so this is our last guide to the centers’ trails.

Kitchener Trail; Sherwood Pines’ Red Route

This red route is another very popular example of Sherwood pines’ bike trails. It is a great trail that is continually evolving. The route is the longest and most difficult trail at the center. You would have to be pretty energetic to get around it without taking a break.

The trail starts at the back of the car park away from the visitor center. The first section of the Kitchener Trail is a fast going path with an irregular surface, this first part prepares you for what is to come…

The trail also has many small ascents and descents throughout its length, however, nothing too severe as the area surrounding Sherwood Pines is relatively flat. If you want some ups and downs I can recommend both Whinlatter in the Lake District or Coed Llandegla in North Wales.

We have a great experience when we are out on any of the cycle routes at Sherwood Pines. I am sure we will visit the trail center a few more times before the year is out.  Please enjoy the video and if you would like to see more of the routes we ride then please subscribe to our YouTube channel.

If you are looking for additional information on the trails available at Sherwood Pines then check out our feature on the Blue Route.

Until next time, stay safe on those trails.
