The trail condition meter on the left is a service provided by TIMBER volunteers to the public. It is an attempt to summarise the current state of the trails, or how muddy and wet they are. Some trails handle poor conditions better than others. The red route for example has undergone a lot of work to improve it's surface and protect it from erosion. The black route and the off-piste natural trails suffer badly from erosion after prolonged wet weather and you may want to avoid them to reduce damage.
If you want more information, the Forestry Commission gives specific details of the conditions of the trails in Thetford Forest on their website. This information is updated regularly.
We also post more detailed descriptions of the trail conditions in our forum.
There are long stretches of mud, standing water and puddles on the trails. Avoid the black route and off-piste natural trails in these conditions.
Trails are muddy and wet in spots. Travel through the mud not around it to reduce the impact of erosion.
The trails are dry and firm. Get out and ride!
