This is a good starting point right on the edge of Ringwood Forest which leads to a network of gravel fire roads and some interesting woodland tracks in the forest itself. There is also some north shore close by the car park for those who want to ride that style of track, and the Forestry Commission has built bike specific trails in the woods between the car park and the Moors Valley Visitor Centre. By going farther afield there is a huge selection of bridleways around Holt Heath and Woodlands to the west whilst going north there is some good quality stuff between Cranborne and Alderholt.
Hints and tips: Easy going forest tracks on the gravel fire roads. Technical single track amongst the trees with good surfaces on the engineered trails. Sticky stuff on the field edges.
