Base Summary: Ennerdale Mountain Biking Trails

Ennerdale can be found to the North West of the Lake Distrct National Park, near Whitehaven. Its a relatively unspoilt valley, with no facilities for tourists and is usually visited by the walker, mtbiker and occasional Coast to Coaster.

While there are no purpose built technical trails to be found, there are a number of bridleways off the fells that offer some exhilarating singltrack descents. The official routes explore either side of the wooded valley, a wilderness worth exploring.
