Hadleigh Bike Track Closure

Visitor Notice – Mountain Bike Trail Closed. Do not use.

We regret to confirm that emergency maintenance is required on the mountain bike trail at Hadleigh Country Park following damage caused by the snow and icy conditions earlier this year. The whole track had been closed with immediate effect. The trails must not be used.

Whilst the snow and ice have meant we have had to close the trail with immediate effect, maintenance on the trail (part of the Olympic Mountain Biking legacy) had been planned for this spring. Please be aware that this is a large-scale project, and therefore the closure may be in place for some time.

We are of course hoping to re-open the track as soon as it is possible to do so safely. Work will take place in a phased fashion, and we aim to keep visitors updated as and when we are able. Keep following us on social media for progress.

We apologise for the disappointment and inconvenience this closure may cause our visitors. Read on for our FAQs about this closure.

FAQs

What is closed?

We regret to confirm that the entire Mountain Bike Track at Hadleigh Country Park has been closed for emergency works and maintenance.

This includes the green, blue, red, and black trails, the rabbit hole and gap jump. Do not use.

What is open?

We are pleased to confirm that the closure only applies to the Mountain Bike Trails as above.

The discovery trail, short loop, family trails and general parkland are all still open for multi-purpose use.

The pump track, skills areas and children’s play equipment are all still open and visitors can enjoy take away refreshments from the Hub.

So, does that mean I can bring my children and their bikes to Hadleigh?

Yes. You can still enjoy the orange discovery and purple family trails with your children which both start from just outside the Salvation Army café, The Hub. The green trail is currently closed for cycling.

Timings – how long will the Mountain Bike Tracks be closed for?

Please be aware that major maintenance works were planned for this spring, so it is likely that the Mountain Bike Trails will be closed for some time.

We are working on a phased approach, with our ambition being to open the Green trail for cyclists as soon as the initial work has been completed.

We will endeavour to keep our users updated as much as possible on the timings. We realise our visitors will be disappointed, and apologise for the inconvenience caused.

Will you have signs in place?

Yes, new signage will be put in place on site to advise visitors of this closure around various entry points to the course and at point of arrival in the car park.
