Bike, run, walk, climb, glide – find out about the amazing world of adventure awaiting for you at Sutton Bank.
Bring your own bike or hire one on site and enjoy the fantastic cycling facilities at Sutton Bank. It’s a great place to get your family cycling, providing access to many miles of bridleways, roads and tracks across the North York Moors. Our cycle trails use a mixture of natural and man made trails similar to those found in a purpose built trail centre. Using the same style of trail marking, the mountain biking trails available are: Cliff – family friendly 3 mile ‘green’ circular off-road cycle trail, mostly level, part of which follows the famous cliff edge. Fort – 7.5 mile ‘blue’ trail with 361m ascent/descent (70% stone, 30% natural surface) runs out past the site of the Iron Age fort at Boltby Scar. A shorter loop of 5.5 miles avoids the ascent/descent and is suitable for families. The Fort route also includes part of the Cliff Trail along the cliff edge. Drovers – add a little more distance and variety without increasing the difficulty on the new ‘blue’ 10 mile figure of eight trail which passes High Paradise Farm for refreshments. Paradise – a 17-mile ‘red’ trail for experienced mountain bikers, through some of the most breathtaking scenery in the National Park. Expect a few technical features and a steep climb or two.
