Comer Woods explorer cycling trail

Explore Comer Woods on two wheels on this circular cycling trail. The family-friendly route takes you through the large Heath Meadow, past farm buildings, and then navigates the paths through the expansive woodland. Here you'll pass ancient trees and tackle some steep inclines, going via a scout camp, before weaving back down to the start.
