Project Description

Gisburn Forest Bike Trails.

Located in the North East corner of Lancashire and within the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Gisburn Forest offers fantastic mountain biking with beautiful views.

Glide easily along mellow trail by Bottoms Beck, twist and shout through Park Wood, dance with your bike down Hully Gully or grit your teeth and rush down the Bigfoot slab – everyone should find something that will make them grin.

Fantastic mountain-biking in the heart of the beautiful Forest of Bowland. Whether you’ve just bought your first bike, or you’re happy shredding through rock gardens, Gisburn Forest offers a fantastic opportunity for natural cycling.

Most of our trails start from Gisburn Forest Hub with car park, toilets, picnic & seasonal cafe.

Skills Loop

Our skills loop is located by the stone wall circle at Gisburn Forest Hub.  Learn, practice and perfect those new riding skills before setting off on one of our trails.

Gisburn is a working and dynamic forest created and managed by the Forestry Commission. The forest and recreation facilities are likely to continue to change and evolve. For more information on what we do, visit:
