Trail Map

Trail Status:

19-03-2014 – All trails are currently open.

Please be aware that the quarries are quite exposed and conditions can change quickly. Take particular care if it is windy. As Lee Quarry is north facing snow and ice can linger for longer than in other parts of the valley.

Lee Quarry also regularly hosts various events which can mean some of the trails may be temporarily closed, please co-operate with event organisers if this is the case.

Emergency / Mobile Reception:

Mobile reception is patchy and generally not good in the quarry. Generally the higher up in the quarry you are the better the reception, i.e. up by the information sail at the top of the three descent lines.

Main grid reference for the quarry is SD 864210, in the event of emergency ring 999.

Parking:

Park in the car park behind Futures Park Offices. Parking is free. Please park responsibly ensuring you don’t block access for other users. Please also be aware of residents who live locally, especially if you’re riding in the evening.

Facilities:

There are currently no facilities at Futures Park (although ambitious plans are being hatched).

Food:

Immediately opposite the entrance to Futures Park is Poppies Deli Cafe which is mountain biker friendly.

Bike Shop:

Ride On in Rawtenstall is the closest and best bike shop locally. Turn left out of Futures park and head back into Rawtenstall.

Accomodation:

Rossendale Pennine Adventure based in Waterfoot can provide accommodation and food for overnight visits.

Marmalades B & B on Newchurch Road in Stacksteads, less than a mile from Futures Park and run by mountain biking hosts.

Bike Hire:

Ride On in Rawtenstall or Rossendale Pennine Adventure can both provide bike hire locally.
