Fivelane Ends on Hamsterley Forest Red Trail
Strictly speaking the "Red" mountain bike trail comes in on the left here and continues straight ahead, but the track the photographer was on forms a convenient shortcut, missing out a short loop to the south west. This is just as well, as the trail leaflet (of which we had not managed to obtain a copy before riding) indicates that dogs are not allowed on mountain bike trails, a restriction which undoubtedly makes sense on the narrower and more technical single-track descents. Our own route was mainly on the forest roads well away from the crowds - it seems that many recreational mountain bikers pick and choose the highlights from the marked trails and not many come this far up the forest, where we were just below the highest point reachable by bike.
