Aston Hill Bike Park

A Slice Of The Alps In The Chiltern Hills

Aston Hill Is Currently Closed Due To Significant Tree Safety Issues Caused By Ash Die Back (Updated 23/06/23)

We are sad to announce that due to an unprecendented amount of Ash Die Back affecting Aston Hill and a lack of suitable access to deal with the situation via conventional tree surgery methods,the forest and trails are currently closed. While this is not the news we wanted, Ash Die Back makes the trees incredibly brittle and causes a significant risk of large sections of branches falling without warning. 

The good news is that there is a plan in place to manage the situation and re-open the forest and we are fully supportive of Forestry England in imposing this current closure based on keeping all users safe. We are asking all riders to respect this closure and due to the seriousness of the situation, physical barriers will be put in place to prevent riding.

Welcome To Aston Hill Bike Park

We are looking forward to welcoming you all back to Aston Hill Bike Park as soon as we’re open again.
