Description by the author

A long-distance off-road trail from the Peak District John o’ Groats.

Explore the huge variety packed into Scotland and northern England: from rolling hills and dales to remote windswept moorland, crumbling castles to hidden waterfalls, from swooping singletrack to old Roman roads and everything in between.

The route is designed to be an adventure mountain biking route, and is mainly on unsurfaced trails. The nature of the terrain varies in different areas - there are many rugged upland trails across exposed moorland, suitable for more experienced mountain bikers, but also short sections of canal path and disused railway perfect for family days out.

The Great North Trail links the Pennine Bridleway with the northern tips of mainland Scotland, through some of Britain’s most stunning upland areas and four National Parks.

So whether it’s for an epic long-distance challenge, a weekend away, or a fantastic day out, get out there and have an adventure.
