Mountain bike trail 

Snibston Colliery Park’s mountain bike trail is 4km of jumps and bumps that takes you twisting and turning through physically and technically demanding tracks on and around the original colliery spoil heap. With mining heritage on the horizon as you move through the woodlands and the natural foliage, this trail offers an exhilarating experience like no other. 

The mountain bike trail is a blue grade route suitable for intermediate cyclists or mountain bikers with basic off-road riding skills. 

Skills area and pump track 

Build confidence at Snibston’s skills areas where you can practice if you’re not quite ready to tackle the trail. The skills area is designed with jumps, uneven terrain and boardwalks giving novice cyclists the chance to build confidence and master the basics. 

Next to the play area is the pump track which is perfect for younger riders. The track has been specially designed and is suitable for balance bikes, scooters and pedal bikes. The circuit of rollers and banked turns gives riders the chance to build confidence and gain momentum as they learn new skills. 

Relax after your ride at the Colliery Café serving hot and cold drinks, sandwiches and cakes 

Please ensure you bring your own bicycle.
