Stainburn Forest Walks and Mountain Biking
This forest near Harrogate has three mountain bike trails to try. There are two red graded trails and a black graded narrow single track trail for the more experienced rider. All the trails are way-marked with colour coded discs. There are rocky descents, technical obstacles and great views of the Washburn Valley. The expansive forest is also good for walkers with good footpaths and lots of wildlife to look out for.

Just to the south is Lindley Wood Reservoir where there is another decent footpath to try.
