      Both mountain bike trails (Red Fox and Blue Hare) and the skills park were opened in 2009, with the key attraction of providing access to the top of the hill by a three man chairlift.
      Situated on the infamous Tomintoul - Cockbridge road (A939) and in the heart of the Cairngorm National Park the centre is on the highest main road in Scotland, at 2090ft and the chairlift ride lifts you up another 700ft.
      The first trail, ‘Red Fox’, is a red run with a descent of 1,600m. This Mountain Cross’ descent has an assortment of dirt jumps, bomb holes, berms and riding features built from rock.
      The skills park, with many different obstacles, is also open and will allow all grades of bikers to improve their techniques.
      The second Mountain Cross trail, ‘Blue Hare’ is 1,900m long, a blue single track with easy jumps, bomb holes, bermed corners, avoidance lanes and with passing places.
      The first sections of both trails are combined at the top of the hill, with extra width and options of feature difficulty.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      This region uses the Uk/Euro style trail grading system.
