Please note during sessions the whole circuit may not be open due to private hire, grounds maintenance or when the venue is closed. During the winter months the trails may open slightly later to allow any frost or ice to melt. On occasions, the hiring of equipment may be restricted and may have to be returned before sunset.

We recommend the following:
