The Wight Max in Brighstone ForestDistance - 18 km / 11 miles, Grade - Moderate
Type of Route - Bridleways and country roads

The ride starts a short distance from Newport close to the impressive stone ramparts of Carisbrooke Castle and soon finds the high ridge of the Tennyson Trail. Splendid panoramic views are a feature of the route as is the quiet seclusion of Brighstone Forest. A sense of adventure is always present over some quite rough terrain. There are a number of alternatives along the way allowing the possibility of taking shorter or longer variations. You'll need to take refreshments with you since there are no pubs on the route.
