Soberton loop

We usually park in the gravel lay-by and the end of the forest on Hundred Acres wood rd.

Head north along the road and cross the main New Town road. Stay on the road all the way past Ingoldfield Farm, turn RIGHT.

Turn right again at Roy's Farm, keep on track until it splits turn LEFT.

Keep on the path (next to field) as you enter the copse, keep left. Ride track to the road, turn RIGHT.

Take the next track on the LEFT, ride the track all the way to the road, turn RIGHT.

Take Kings Way on your LEFT. Keep on track as it turns LEFT through trees and opens up to a fire road, turn RIGHT.

Gentle climb all the way to 'Buzzards Blast' downhill.... Named as you will always see a Buzzard somewhere down this track. Follow the downhill all the way to the road, turn LEFT.

Follow road all the way to Soberton, head under the old train bridge by the river Meon and walk (and carry your bike) up the steps up to the old Meon Valley train line.

Follow the train track to Upperford copse and head in to Hundred Acres woods just before the bridge.

Head to your right and take the first left and climb up tot he car park. turn LEFT on to the road and turn RIGHT in to the opposite car park.

Take the path down to the stream and turn Right and follow the track next to the stream. the track crosses the stream and climbs, keep LEFT and climb to the cross roads.

Head directly over the cross roads and climb the Pilgrim's Trail all the way tot he car park. Head to the road and turn LEFT.

Time for some gravity racing all the way back to the car, no pedalling! 

Images to follow.
