*Several parts of this course got changed by logging after lockdown - so you will need to do some exploring !
And most of last years photos will now look very different!
If you do this course, take some photos of the changes and I'll update this page.
The segment starts and finishes at Easby Park, 25m into the paddock from the car park bridge. The route involves grass/gravel/dirt tracks, steep uphills/descents and a narrow, gnarly sections. Around 50% of the route is not suitable for running fast, so cool it down where necessary and give way and give space to other users.
The route also uses a section of “Escalator” which is a reasonably wide MTB track regularly used by walkers and runners, but care must be taken and give way to uphill & downhill bikers.
The majority of the route is in forest and your gps is not to be relied on! Hopefully Strava will recognise your activity when you’ve finished, but no promises.
Start your watch/phone recording before arriving at Easby and run out of the car park over the little bridge and up the obvious dirt path up the paddock. The dirt path becomes a gravel 4wd track. At the next fork in the 4wd track, take the LEFT (straight) track (not right over the stream), heading for a large rusty red storage container.
Just before the container turn RIGHT down a small track.
