Easy direct cycle up to the start via the Forest Road makes this a good one for multiple runs. Runs along the side of an old burn. Usually relatively dry route even in the depths of Winter. Fast and flowing first quarter, middle section has a few options for natural jumps, then into a tree slalom through dark conifers and roots. Trail then opens out into open deciduous woodland for a fast finish...and repeat.

This trail is unsanctioned.
