    One red and one black. Red takes around 2mins from trail head to the bottom. Black is short maybe a 30 second thrill. Its good for the space available. But its much better to combine with a longer ride round Rivington.
    I ride over from Horrocks fold to the masts down Georges lane and from the pigeon tower and head over to the nab.

    the area is small but the layout of the trail is clever.. i not been for well over a year, but i am guesssing with all this rain we been having it will be very wet and sloppy in there..

    sounds good defo going to include it in a route around rivi. Thinking of combining haigh hall some good little routes through there, then go along the canal and come off near Anglezarke reservoir.

    I'd say its longer than that, then there's the trail back up.

    You must be a good rider

    I agree, its proberly more like 10-15 minutes for the red, the uphill towards the end takes a good few minutes on its own. The black is quite short. Is there Not 2 reds aswell?

    Its a good blast though, I spent a few hours there not too long ago, got to it from Chorley train station which was very simple, took 10 minutes. The only thing though is when I was there, On parts of the red there was a coupl berms dug up with stones scattered everywere. That was about 5 weeks ago though may be ok now.
