Epic mud in the winter and crazy brambles in the summer but lots of fun if you like it twisty and fast. Its very easy to go riding here, if you live in London, Essex or Hertfordshire. There are trains from London Liverpool Street to Chingford, and the Central Line to Snaresbrook, South Woodford, Loughton or Epping giving easy access to the forest.
