Top UK MTB Trails: Helvellyn

Helvellyn, Lake District

Helvellyn Trail, Lake District

There’s so much stunning riding in the Lake District, it could be argued that the entire area ought to be on the bucket list.

However, Helvellyn makes the cut here; at over 3,000ft, it offers a ride as high as you can ride in England. Beside this, it’s possible to climb and descend with only small parts of really technical going. The best is to go from Matterdale Common, with an out and back from Raise to descend the steep but simple zig-zags to Glenridding. There are also more technical options.
