Beda Fell Singletrack Mountain Bike Trail

About Beda Fell Singletrack

This is a fast and fun piece of singletrack descent into the Bannerdale valley, near Ullswater in the Lake District.

Access the trail by climbing Boredale Hause from either Boredale, Patterdale or Hartsop. From Boredale Hause the trail climbs up and over Beda Fell and, after a short rocky section, the long natural singletrack trail into Bannerdale begins.

From there a short road blast gets you to Sandwick or Howtown, from where you can continue your adventure. Head either west along the famous Ullswater Lakeside route; or east along the road to Pooley Bridge and Roehead, giving access to the many Askham Fell routes, such as The Cockpit to Howtown descent.

This Lake District route is a variation on our Ullswater & Boredale Figure of Eight route and takes in some of the best Ullswater has to offer. From our preferred starting point in Patterdale, we start the ride with the climb of the mountain pass, Boredale Hause, and traverse of Beda Fell, setting us up nicely for the fun and fast descent into Bannerdale.

A section of road brings us to the next part of the ride, a climb to The Cockpit stone circle and descent of the popular and awesome natural singletrack descent to Howtown.

But the fun isn't over yet, we have yet to tackle the infamous Ullswater Lakeside path, the marmite of mountain bike trails... will you love it or hate it?! Although this trail follows (roughly) the lakeside, don't be fooled, there are plenty of undulations to keep you entertained, and lots of rocks!
