97) Thrybergh Country Park, Doncaster Rd, Thrybergh, Rotherham, South Yorkshire, S65 4NU
5 km circular but you can add little sections to leave the reserve if you wish.
Terrain: hard standing - good paths mostly - some sections were quite muddy when we visited (Jan 2023).
largely even, mostly flat surfaces with a few small hills. the route is probably best done in a clockwise direction so the steepest hill on the route becomes an easier short, but not silly steep downhill section. Typically, today we did the route anti-clockwise so a small push on the hill was needed. Some sections of paths were being remade / upgraded during our visit (Jan 2023).
Facilities on site:
Good sized car parking - free for blue badge users.
Cafe - reasonably prices and good quality food and drinks, disabled toilets are provided.
