The Powerline is a fast technical mountain bike trail that starts at the main car park and finishes near the River Derwent.  The main trail is classed as Red Grade (difficult), but there is also an optional Black Grade (severe) section.

Chopwell Trail Builders carry out repairs and maintenance work on the Powerline trail.  If you want to lend a hand, then you can find out more via their Facebook page.

There are many other trails in the woodland which are multi-user, please take care and keep your speed down.  There could be small children, elderly people, dog walkers or horse riders around any corner.

NEW – a Pump Track is now open just outside the wood, on the west side, in Chopwell village park at NE17 7EH.  This can be used by cycles, scooters, and skateboards and is free.  This is the result of much planning and work by the Friends of Chopwell Park.  Their volunteers maintain the site, so please help them by reading and observing the rules on the Safety Notice at the site.
