      Starting at Craiggowrie it is very very boggy. You are going past your boots in bog and water. There is also a hidden hole that looks like normal...

      Lots of wet boggy sections to negotiate between each descent and climb, plus last descent is peat big hole ridden. Still great trail overall though.

      21.7.22 Ich bin gewohnt das Bike auch für längere Zeit zu tragen oder zu schieben! Aber diese Tour lohnt sich nicht zum Biken! Eine schöne Tour mit Wanderschuhen.

      Done early September after a week of sunshine and no rain. Excellent views from the trail but not the best riding. Final descent, as mentioned by others, is mostly bog. The first descent from the top is fun if you like big, Boulder fields to blast through.
      Hike-a-bike from Ryvoan is tough. 45-60 mins straight up. Plenty more carrying afterwards too.
      I enjoyed the day out but wouldn’t do it again.

      A hill walking route that's possible to do on a bike. I did this a couple of days ago as a loop from Loch Morlich and in a clock wise direction opposite to the Trailforks route. It took 3 - 4 hours due to the amount of hike a bike, I would recommend it for the views and experience but be prepared to carry your bike for 80%

      Rode up from Badaguish and joined the trail which comes up from the Glenmore visitor centre. Pushed upper stages to join the ridge to the west of Meall A'Buchaille. The views were great but the going was hard due to bogs. The descent towards Badaguish was very wet but mostly rideable. I would recommend this as a walk or run but not a ride.

      Good views, horrible ride / push /carry up from Ryvoan. Descent off first hill was ok, the rest was mixed, some ok sections with plenty of bog. Last descent was a swamp.

      Nice view from the tops. We had to hike up. Biking down between the peaks is rocky and ok but also a lot of wet and marshy parts. The way down at the end is not really a trail anymore but marshy meadows.
