A nice loop taking in some of the lesser known trails in the area. There isn't much riding takes place in the area and therefore some of these trails resemble not much more than worn deer tracks.

Start from beside the village hall and begin by riding north along the track. Keep going past Nether Braco Boarding, you'll come to a juction in the track close to a large green shed sitting in the corner of a field, at this junction head west.

Leave this track shortly after as shown on the map, cross the wooden bridge and follow the grassy track up hill,you'll come to an open area and shortly after you'll come into another narrow wooded plantation. There is a track running along the south side of the strip but between this track and the Mill Burn there is narrow single running through the trees,this is great fun but doesn't get ridden much and therefore might be difficult to find initially so please pay attention to the map and if possible download the route to a gps device.

At the western end of this wood there is a short steep technical section heading down to the burn where there is a bridge, cross the bridge, follow the obvious track heading uphill and join a well used forestry tye track, from here, head west.

You'll reach the Beuly Denny pylon line, near to which there is another well defined track that heads north east. Follow this towards the 2 small wind turbines.

From the turbines head downhill, pay attention to the map around this point as you want to leave the main track and join some narrow single track. This junction is across from the first group of scotspine trees that sit on the north side of the track on a slight corner.

From this point enjoy the single track and quad tracks, you'll pass an old graveyard which is enclosed and you'll end up back on the well defined track you were on earlier. When you rejoin the track ride eastwards back down the hill, passing Blairmore Farm.

Continue riding downhill from Blairmore Farm towards Nether Braco Boarding, but before you get to the Nether Braco there is a small trail that runs downhill towards Braco village along the route of the Keir Burn.

This trail is marked by an orange dot on a large pine tree, once to locate the trail at this point is very eas to follow. This is one of the most fun trails in the area, just take care as there are steeps drops at some points.

This trail will eventually bring you onto a road, from here head left along the road back towards the village hall.
