Mountain biking in Leigh Woods
The Yer Tiz trail in Leigh Woods is a blue grade, engaging trail weaving its way through this protected woodland.
The Yer Tiz trail
Follow our cycle route through diverse broadleaf woodlands on the plateau above the Avon Gorge.
The Yer Tiz trail requires a mountain bike, but is suitable for relative novices. You’ll weave your way through the woodland and if you’re up for a challenge, the trail splits giving you the option of the more difficult red grade Gert Lush trail
Please stick to the surfaced trails
Leigh Woods supports an exceptional number of nationally rare species of plants, insects, fungi and animals, in recognition of this, the site is a National Nature Reserve, part of the Avon Gorge Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation.
It is very important to stick to the mountain bike trail and not forge your own path through the woods.
Thank you for helping us look after this special place.
