Deers Leap is a 230+ acre park which was purchased by the Hobbs family with the intention of creating a space for recreation, including a mountain bike park, back in the 1990s. It is now run by Deers Leap Bikes Ltd, Director Steve Ranger. The Manager is Adam Falshaw.
Deers Leap is private land and we charge a small fee for bike riders for our trail maintenance, although walking is free.
Dog walkers – sorry, but we don’t allow dog walkers on Deers Leap any more. We have had so much dog mess left on our trails, and incredible rudeness and aggression from some dog walkers, that we have had to close the park to dog walkers. We are dog owners ourselves and hate to do this, but a small number of people have caused such problems that we have reluctantly taken this decision.
If you walk your dog at Deers Leap, you are trespassing.
