TRAIL RIDING ON SALISBURY PLAIN

As regards trail riding on Salisbury plain  Rangers Garage/  Endurotyres.com  location couldn’t be better. We are easy to find just 1 mile from  A303 Solstice Service Roundabout Amesbury  Nr Stonehenge.

At  “Rangers Corner” we have Fast food, Tesco Express,Cashpoint, Esso Fuel  on site . By prior arrangement  and at owners risk we can accommodate small vans and trailers , and with our local knowledge advise on the best by-ways , which are on our doorstep.

The Salisbury Plain Training Area (SPTA) measures around 94,000 acres – an area about the size of the Isle of Wight. This includes roads and stone tracks as well as the many (but NOT all) unsurfaced Chalk tracks which can be driven on as designated byways or Rights of Way. These Rights of Way are less than two miles from our Garage, and can be easily identified on Ordnance Survey maps. If you own a 4×4 vehicle or an “off road motorcycle” you will need to be “road legal” to drive on these byways, in the same manner as you would on any other road. Don’t stray into any Red flag Areas, and please slow down for Horse riders, Livestock and Dog Walkers. The Chalk Byways can be very dusty in Summer, and extremely slippery in Winter.
