Leigh Woods (Yer Tiz)

Ability lvl:

Moderate / Challenging

Approx. Time:




Shorter but more feature-packed than the trail in Ashton Court, Yer Tiz follows the route of the unofficial trails that used to criss-cross the top of the wood.

The trail includes a short skills area, with different types of obstacle grouped in increasingly difficult sets of three. There are also some short optional red sections including switchbacks and “rock shore” (Imagine a North Shore ladder bridge made of rocks).

Part of the trail is two-way so you can session the start or finish of the circuit. Riding the whole loop brings you back out at North Road.

Leigh Woods is two miles west of Bristol City Centre Centre.

The main entrances are off the A369 Portishead Road at Kennel Lodge Road, for the mansion and centre of the estate, and at Clifton Lodge for the golf course and top of the estate.

There is an easy and pleasant walking and cycling route from Bristol or Pill via the River Avon Trail and regular buses run close to the main entrance.

Mountain bike hire is available at Pedal Progression.
