This beautiful woodland hill park nestled in the South Downs is a great place to put your mountain biking to the test, and it has excellent facilities. As well as access to the South Downs Way, you can take advantage of the purpose built graded bike trails that take you zig zagging through the forest. E-bikes can be hired on site for those who don't feel up to the hills.
