Not recommended! Temporary detour during the Forestry Commission's operation to thin trees around the first climb/Fall Brae area. The area below the Buzzard's Nest car park is closed. Very long, boring and quite steep slog up a forestry road. Once the deforesting is finished, this might be useful to some riders keen to session the top. Also worth knowing as an emergency descent from the top of Hit Squad Hill.
