      This region is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

      The land is owned by the Crieff Hydro, Scotland's leading leisure resort. There are a few official trails for leisure cycling and two "Downhill Trails" that are good fun too, but not very steep or technical. One person has built these trails in his own time and off his own bat, so show some respect and don't ride in big groups, cut Strava lines etc.

      If you're staying at the Hydro, there's loads for families to do, great views and the current management set up at the Hydro seem to be really pro-cycling, there's even family bike hire and a qualified mountain bike guide on site. If you're an enduro rider looking for a nice place to take the family, this would be a great call. Bring your bike, the Hydro trails are great and Comrie (recently voted the UK's best trail centre) is just up the road too - Dunkeld and Perth aren't far either for more amazing riding spots. Quite a few of my friends have managed to get points with their other half by booking a trip here and "finding something to do"...I know that sounds sexist!

      If you're not staying at the Hydro, say "Hi" and smile at everyone you see, don't leave litter etc. Generally, don't be a dick and spoil it for the rest of us! (At least) buy a coffee in the cafe next to the bike hire too, the food is excellent.

      We're very lucky to have this spot so close to Glasgow.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill

      Access Info:
      If you are not staying at the Hydro,drive up past the stables and then take a right the first dirt track, and park at the viewpoint. On the way back, turn right then left at the mini roundabout and park up, the cafe is in the building opposite.
      This region uses the Uk/Euro style trail grading system.
