Mabie has few facilities - the bike shop is now closed, there’s no cafe and we didn’t find a bike wash. This is perhaps that the car park is a little way asay from the magic of the trails and there appeared to be little...More

A great location for walking and Mountain Biking, has nice family trails, good greens and blues. Red trails is flowing with some technical features, but not a huge number ( not recommend for small children. Or basic skill level riders) Will revisit
