Manchester 17 Hawks Nest Trial (for the Councillor J D Robinson Trophy)

Wicken Walls Farm, Hawks Nest, Near Buxton, Derbyshire. SK17 0TH  OS Map Ref SK 013 671

Signs off A53 Buxton Leek road about 3 miles from Buxton

All adult and youth classes but no easy route.

The sections will have 2 routes - the Normal (yellow flags) will have natural sections and little need for technical riding such as in a more traditional "club" trial. The Hard route (red and blue flags) will be of a more technical and athletic nature requiring skills and effort as would be expected in a good "Centre" trial. There will be a 50/50 route with a mix of the hard and yellow flag sections there will be no easier route (white flags) .
