Single-track Mountain Bike Trail
Following the family trail from Bedgebury Park you are straight on to the forest paths that test bike handling skills and fitness levels. The hilly nature of the land provides for some short sharp climbs, which pleasingly result in some fast, flowing technical descents. The single-track is broken-up into sections, normally dissected by a fire road, which provided the opportunity to give the trail full gas and then re-group. The one-way route is extremely well sign-posted and offers many challenges from tree roots on the descents, short sharp climbs, and rocky terrain.

Black Run
The black-run is a short section, which features several drop-off style jumps. Riders can easily divert around this section if jumps are not wanted.

Dirt Jumps / Freeride
Just off the main path is a freeride area consisting of a downhill run with a number of dirt jumps and tabletops. Just away from the dirt jumps, some low level North Shore sections provide a good test of a rider's balance and agility.

Leisure Riding
Whilst the single-track trail caters for mountain bike enthusiasts, the rest of the Forest is very much family orientated. The 9-kilometer leisure trail (with its shorter 4 kilometer loop) is on managed way-marked paths and fire roads. Plenty of families enjoy cycling in a traffic-free environment.

And on the road
Situated in the heart of the beautiful Kent countyside there are many beautiful road rides which can be accessed from Bedgebury Park and It is worth noting that Sustrans' National Route 18 from Canterbury to Tunbridge Wells passes right through the forest.
