      This region is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

      Unofficial riding spot. Not for beginners, no facilities, no markers, take your rubbish home and respect the other forest users, riders and trail builders. These trails aren't built for the high numbers of users, and they're built by people on their own free time. Big groups riding them ruins these trails.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      AKA: Thorny
      Land Status: Community Forest
      Parking google parking directions
      Access Info:
      Car Park - sign posted from the road as Thornielee viewpoint- a quiet, historical part of Scottish history.So park your VW T4 sensibly and turn the stereo off before you open the doors. ;-P
      This region uses the Uk/Euro style trail grading system.
