Forest junction
Forest junction
Hamsterley forest seems to have outgrown its purpose as merely a place for growing timber and has been actively developed as a mountain biking venue in recent years (ie. the Forestry Commission are trying to make money out of it rather than just tolerating the odd biker as used to be the case twenty years ago). Many of the forest roads sport signs pointing to graded trails which either follow the roads, or wind through the forest between the roads, sometimes taking in steep and technical descents (mostly the signs are unidirectional, encouraging cyclists to climb on the wider tracks and avoiding bi-directional traffic on the narrower sporting trails).
