Beginning in Ochil HIlls Woodland Park, there is a tough climb to the top of Ben Buck. After a short but steep climb via the forest path the remainder of the climb is mostly on landrover track but gets pretty steep at times.
From Ben Buck, head east to the summit of Ben Cleuch you follow the walkers path over the heather. This is rideable in the dry but there may be some hike a bike bits when it's been wet as it gets pretty muddy.
From Ben Cleuch continue east head towards Andrew Gannel Hill.
Do not take the descent down via The Law as this is not really suitable for riding unless you like carrying your bike while you do some rock scrambling!
There are two descent options once you reach Andrew Gannel Hill, both returning to the same point at Tillicoultry.Here there are some tight switch backs and steps on the path but all ridable with care.Fast and great fun on the way down.
Return to the Ochil HIlls Woodland Park via the offroad path at the back of the golf course.
