      Ae, Scotland’s shortest village name is only 20 minutes from the M74 motorway in Dumfries and Galloway...
      But ride its trails and you’ll think you’re in another world.
      With a superb variety of green, blue and red-graded trails, an extreme rated downhill section and skills area you could not want for more at Ae.A green-graded trail is aimed mainly at families. Taking you to a beautiful viewpoint overlooking the Water of Ae.
      The Larch View Route - A blue-graded trail is suitable for those families looking to take in a little bit more of the forest.
      Ae Line - Scottish Power Renewables Trail - A challenging red-graded ride with an aggressive freeride style. The highlight of the route is the final descent of Omega Man with its multiplicity of jumps.
      The Shredder - Perfect if downhill is more your thing. This orange-graded bike park is an entry level downhill track giving you a taste of everything.
      Ae Downhill - This orange-graded park route provides a bigger challenge with its seriously gnarly rocky sections satisfying the most demanding of riders.
