Shepherd 

Family trail of 5 miles requiring only moderate fitness. Wide paths and good surfaces suitable for all ages and abilities.

Poacher 

Family trail of 10 miles requiring moderate fitness. Paths narrow in places, road crossings and some hills.

Beater Trail 

Fast- flowing moderate single track winding between the trees.   More challenging than the Shepherd & Poacher trails, 11 miles for fit riders. What riding at Thetford Forest is all about! Minimum age 12 years.

Lime Burner

10 miles of single track, snaggly in parts and home of the Beast of the East. Steep rises and descents which make the most of what terrain we have in Norfolk. Recommended for experienced riders with good endurance fitness, skill and off road knowledge. Minimum age 16 years.

Trail conditions, weather, closures etc. are all regularly updated and available on the Forestry Commission's site.
