Easy red trail descent with forest road climb and amazing panorama views from top. Tiny black trail at top but barely any speed needed for it. Badly signposted with the best trails at the top and the worst at the bottom. Takes ages to get to the top though.

Access Info

If coming from Lochgilphead direction turn right after Cairnbaan and go along the track to the car park. There is a map here and also some walking trails and a tiny pump/jump track. Come out of the car park and turn right and continue up the forest track. You will reach another small parking space. This is where the lowest down the hill trail starts. The forest road will go downhill for a bit and you should turn left onto a small fun track which basically just cuts the corner. You will go uphill and then over a bridge which you turn right to do the water splash trail or left for the good stuff at the top. Assuming you want to go to the top you keep turning right at the forks and you will reach the top of the trail. It's a long climb but remember for every uphill there is a downhill.
