Whinlatter has always offered some good Mountain Biking but a few years ago the creation of the Altura Trail transformed the Forest into a purpose bulit trail centre.
Currently there are two main trails at Whinlatter. The Altura Trail is a challenging 19 kilometre red grade mountain bike trail with around 80% of singletrack. The Quercus Trail is a far easier 7.5 kilometre blue grade trail which is still fun to ride for expert riders.
Whinlatter offers great facilities for the Montain Biker with Car Parking, Cafe, Toilets, Bike Shop and Jet Wash all located near the Visitor Centre. The only thing lacking really is any changing or shower facilities.
