What does Wind Hill B1kepark have to offer?

Awarded Bikepark of the Year 2017 and with trails to suit all levels of rider – from first time pedal pushers to seasoned pros – Wind Hill has become a firm favourite with all that have visited.  

Wind Hill is one of the South’s best known B1KEPARKs.
Since opening in April 2017 Wind Hill has become one of the ‘must ride’ destinations on many mountain biker’s bucket list! Believe the hype.
In the words of Sam Pilgrim “This place is Sick!!!”

Wind Hill is home to freeride-focussed downhill trails, set within broadleaf woodland on the Longleat Estate all within earshot of roaring lions and howling wolves.
The Wind Hill build team have really made the most of the elevation and the contours of the hill to build a progression pathway that can not be rivalled.

Trails

Wind Hill has had its fair share of hype and hysteria, beginning before it even opened and continuing to this day. Believe the hype….but also look beyond!
The back drop to pro-edits galore you’d be forgiven for believing it’s a venue suited only to the world’s elite riders.  If you think this then think again: the site has trails for riders of all levels, whatever the style of riding.

With 10 individual trails to choose from, such as the cruisey delights of Blutopia – a blue trail which is ridden and loved by everyone – through to one of the UK’s most challenging but rewarding ‘Pro Lines’ – Viagra Falls – and lines which work for a broad spectrum of riders whilst never losing their appeal. Wind Hill has it all in abundance.

The Left Hand Side

Downhill

This trail has more moves than a collection of dads at a wedding! Since its addition to the trail network a few years ago it has proven to be a firm favourite, and just like its namesake is likely to go on performing well into its senior years.

Another trail that grows on riders and allows them to develop into discovering more lines.
A small drop at the top is the only obligatory feature which can’t be rolled but don’t think that means it’s easy to tame. An opt-in big drop line for the bigger hitters and a (rollable if necessary) road-gap ensure that this trail is far from toothless. Steep, technical catch-berms that you have to work hard to master lead to a high speed finish, crossing bridges over the spring fed, babbling brook.
Can you tame the Lions?

The clue is in the name but there is far more to this trail than roots alone: drops, stepped-out chutes and more than a bit of casual trail chunder are all there to keep you on your toes!

A firm favourite with top to bottom action; combining technical natural elements and a park feel.
The latter half of this trail is a reimagining of one of the legacy trails from the ‘Allotment’ days.
A split half-way down allows rider to opt in to bigger hits and gaps, whilst if you stick to the right hand side the jump are more forgiving.

For lovers of downhill, technical, natural trails which only require optional airtime. This trail is a test of skills beyond jumping.
Off-camber roots, moto-whoops and an optional rock garden, combine to create a trail that at speed is perhaps the most technical on the hill.
With line choices galore, this trail can be negotiated by relatively novice riders but to master it will take great skill.

The ‘Red’ graded alternative to Pass the Dutchie. The same feel good tech vibes, all wrapped in a slightly less heady package.

Freeride

The perfect start to your day at the park, and we strongly recommend you do start here.
This flow trail is as much fun for novices getting accustomed to park life as it is for pros seeking cheeky transfers. With rollers, berms and superbly crafted jumps there is no better way to start your day…..and we know you’ll come straight back up to hit it again.
Blutopia feeds 5 other trails (3 Black, 2 Red) and right from the ramp is feature-packed fun, guaranteed to provide a huge grin.

Follow Blutopia to the fourth turn off and you find one of our signature trails, Empuru.
A hugely progressive jump line, filled with the sweetest berms, step-ups and step-downs. This red run is a game changer! In the words of Sam Pilgrim it’s  ‘Better than Whistler’s A-Line’, and who are we to disagree?!
The split sided jumps provide progression when required and the long landings inspire confidence. The bottom berms are both a joy to ride and a joy to look at in equal measure.
Making the most out of the hill, this trail would make your journey worth worthwhile wherever you’ve travelled from, even if it was the only one in the park!

This stand alone iconic feature is the perfect qualifier for those thinking of stepping-up their game.
Eminently trickable, a reworked feature that harks back to the Black Canon days. If you fancy throwing some shapes, working on your style or perfecting your next trick, this is the place to do it!

Big doesn’t begin to describe it! But it’s not just the size – it’s what you do with it that counts…
A line built to provide a challenge but also allow riders to show their “steeze”! Although the features are frankly ludicrous in size they are shaped to be trickable, not just about hitting at mach-10 and hoping for the best.
Designed with input from local legend Chris Smith who test piloted every feature, this trail is like something out of a video game. Favourably compared to any trail on the FMB world tour, Viagra Falls is definitely something to work up to and not something you have for breakfast!
With 14 features in all: even if you’ll never ride it it’s worth the visit just to watch those that do. Straight off the ramp you are in to a series of carefully designed and crafted features that set this trail apart from so many others. The iconic ‘Boner Log’ and line of 30-40ft jumps that follow are rapidly becoming part of MTB folklore and draw riders quite literally from across the globe.

The most recent addition to the park, Pay Rise was conceived by the trail crew during the tail end of the COVID pandemic, with a view to bringing some old areas back into play and introducing a whole load of new ones. Since its opening it has quickly become one of the most Instagramable areas on the hill; guaranteed to bring a smile to the faces of rider and ‘followers’ alike!

Understand the Lozenge Grading System

The Lozenge grading pertains to the Technical Trail Features (TTF’s) that the trail includes. This can be drops, steep chutes, jumps (tables or gap jumps) road-gaps and berms. The Lozenge system is applied within Singletrack grading.

A single lozenge denotes small features and indicates a more technical trail than other more feature-driven lines.

Two lozenge trails will contain technical trail features of a medium to large size. A trail with a two lozenge grade MAY contain features that can not be rolled (ie on a black graded trail) but MAY also have a lesser or rollable option available.

Three lozenge trails have large technical trail features.
These will be unavoidable and require suitable ability and total commitment.
Riders should be capable of, and expect to leave the ground in order to complete these trails.

My favourite place to ride in the UK.  EMPURU is better than Whistler’s A Line. From Blutopia to Viagra Falls you’ll find a trail to tick your boxes.
