Track to Tinker Hills Plantation
Track to Tinker Hills Plantation
The southernmost track leaving the Blackling Hole parking area in Hamsterley Forest climbs above Spurlswood Beck, which forms the southern edge of the forestry area. The steep slope falling away to the south allows a lot of sunlight to filter in, especially as the marjority of trees on that side of the track are larch, which are starting to lose their needles in early November. The Sitka Spruce on the other side of the track give much deeper shade. Behind the photographer, the track continues its gentle ascent, into an area marked as Tinker Hills Plantation, and beyond that on into the heart of the Hamsterley Forest. This particular track is designated as a red mountain bike trail, and signposting would suggest that cyclists are encouraged to treat the trail as a one-way system, clockwise, which here means heading westwards (uphill).
