Additional Event Information
Approx 5 miles long and utilising a secluded loop off the Carsington circular trail this route takes a leisurely meander uphill through the woods before reconnecting to the main reservoir path. The route sets out and concludes waterside and there is a fabulous view across the reservoir from the top of the hill. This is an excellent route for less experienced combinations as it is on a usually quiet section of the trail. There is however an opportunity to gain some traffic exposure whilst not being on the road along the roadside section of the trail.
