Biking the Clent Hills

Clent Hills volunteers repairing a bike track

They can be tough climbs on the Clent Hills, but the rewarding views and extensive bridleway network make it worth the exercise.

The Clent Hills have an extensive network of bridleways and permissive tracks which are shared by walkers, horses, and cyclists. From fast dry and stony tracks requiring a sharp eye and concentration, to muddy woodland slogs demanding perseverance.

Bridleways are marked with a standard rights of way blue arrow, and there is also the designated bike route: The Dark Pool Descent.

Be aware though, that all routes can be very busy at times with horses and walkers, so a bell and polite call to other users is recommended.
