Railroad Lodges MTB Trail


This route is modeled on the European and American “rails to trails” concept where cycling is along the dirt servitude roads that run parallel to railway lines.


Starting at the back of the station head north for ~60m and then turn left along the tar road running between the old pub and the railway workers’ accommodation, the road becomes gravel at this point. Follow the road over the railway lines and turn right immediately after the railway crossing on the rail line maintenance track.

Continue along the maintenance track until you reach the sand road – at this point turn left and continue along the sand road until you reach the T junction. This is a tar road (R500). Turn left and climb towards the top of the hill. Take the next sand road to the left. Continue along this sand road until you reach a T junction at which point you bear left. Carry on along this stretch of road until you reach a T junction which brings you back onto the original sand road, turn right and then right again back onto the maintenance track just before the railway line. Follow the tracks back to the station.
