    Chopwell!!!

    Hello,


    I am going to Chopwell tomorrow and it will be my first time there. I have done a bit of research and found that the powerline is the trail to do. It is only a 20 minute downhill trail. I have a few questions, is it easy to find? I have heard it has a few routes going down so each time you do it, it could be different. Is it easy to get back to the start and how long? Is it worth doing it all day or is there any other good routes?



    Any help and advice would be great I am going to give it a test to see if its worth returning in the future

    Thankyou

    The powerline trail doesn't exist anymore, it got bulldozed due to elf and safety. Not much else there to be honest.

    It was still there just after christmas when we went down there. The rumours of it's destruction appear to be total bo77ox.


    P.S. the powerline aint all it's hyped up to be.

    I've been once, it were crap. Could have been something to do with me breaking my rear hub and having to walk a mile and a half back to the car park though.
