WYCH LODGE BIKE PARK
WYCH LODGE BIKE PARK
Formerly O.P Trails
A short cycle from Taunton town centre, Wych Lodge Woods is home to a small community bike park project. Providing off road cycling trails suitable for most abilities A 2.5km forest road loop around a fishing lake links the two MTB areas. Allowing for lap after lap with 7 downhill trails to choose from.
The project began 20 years ago, by Andrew Hughes. Over the years the trails previously known as Orchard Portman developed from small log jumps and raked out single track, to what it is today, 7 off road trails, featuring, jumps, berms and drops totalling over 5km of fun, with plenty of other jibby features around to keeping you entertained all day & much more is planned for the future.
The trails are located alongside the Herepath bridle way allowing the Wych Lodge Bike Park facility to be linked into a longer off road cycle on the Blackdown Hills all the way to the Castle Neroche woodland.
The facility is manitained by a group of Wych Lodge Bike Park club volunteers in co-operation with Forestry England. This is a free to use facility for all users, and users do so entirely at there own risk please be respectful of others, give way on shared paths and obey any signage in place.
