The trail uses exisiting forest roads and tracks and has numbered marker posts all the way to reassure those less familiar with the area that they are on track. The funding allowed us to reinstate the track between Clayford and Ameysford which was unpassable at certain times of year beforehand and this meant the trail could be circular at least on the Uddens side.
The first (and last) post is near to the Colehill entrance to Cannon Hill plantation and the trail comes down the hill to cross Uddens drive before continuing into Uddens plantation. Less fit cyclists may choose to start and finish their ride at Uddens drive (starting at No 9 and returning to No 31) as the climb back up to Colehill is quite strenuous.
Once in Uddens you cycle along the existing Castleman trailway up to and beyond Uddens Water (a tributary of the Stour) before returning on the new track already mentioned and then back to Uddens drive.
We will aim to check all is in order with the trail every couple of months, but if there are any issues in the meantime please always feel free to report them in to us at the Forestry Commission on 02380-283141.
