Mountain biking trail grades

Trail grades are split between those for cross-country singletrack trails and those for extreme trails and forest roads.
This is to highlight that:
  • forest roads can be of variable difficulty and are not part of a progression on to green and blue level singletrack trails.
  • Similarly, orange-graded trails/features are not simply a progression on from singletrack grades.
  • Explanations for each of the gradings are given below the symbol tables.
Cross country single-track trail grades

These are a general indication of difficulty – there are easier and trickier options available within each grade.
