      This region is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

      Caberston Forest, or the Golfie as its commonly known, is home to some of the legendary Tweed Valley natural trails. 3G, Repeat Offender, Flat White and Waterworld all twist their way down the steep slopes of this unassuming hill to the north of Innerleithen. Once the exclusive playground of those in the know, this area has been catapulted into the spotlight in the last few years thanks to the many race series who visit the area and use the trails to test those riders who dare to take on the challenge.

      Difficulty Rating.
      To aid new visitors to the area, we are trialling a difficulty indicator. The trails name is followed by a value from 1-5. This will help give you an indication of how difficult the trail is compared to other trails on the hill. Due to the limitations of the current grading system, there is currently no way of knowing the difference in level between the various black grade trails. This will hopefully go a little way to sort that out. (1) is least technical, (5) is most technical.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      AKA: Golfie
      Land Status: National Forest

      Access Info:
      Innerleithen - Park at the Red Bull car park (the one the Uplift runs from) and pay a couple of quid to keep the Forestry Commission happy. There is also a Car park as you start on the B709 Leithen Road. Please don't park on residential streets and try to be low impact! The small parking area at the gate to the forest belongs to the local Golf Club, so please don't wind them up by parking there or on anything else that looks like a private road or farm access.
      This region uses the Uk/Euro style trail grading system.
