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.

      Running well. Bombhole and jump in good condition. Roots exposed and solid later on though.

      Trail requires quite a bit of pedalling as it's a very shallow descent. Nice little jump at the start and the bomb hole's good. ????

      Fun and fast. Rode it blind, so had some trouble picking out the trail near the middle due to leaves everywhere. It was also getting dark when I rode it. Bombhole near the start which was good fun.
