Connects the estate track from Carrbridge side of Beinn Ghuilbin to the ancient trail called Coffin Road. Coffin Road trail has fallen into disrepair and bog at the Carrbridge end so this connect allows that to be avoided in both directions. Good potential for making a more rideable trail here in both the up and down directions, land in solid and has a mix of argo cat trail, deer trail on firm forest surface. Be really good to see the Coffin trail getting more use as that is a beautiful ancient forest trail which makes both the most direct connect from Carrbridge To Aviemore and links into the back of the Burnside Riding area. This gives great potential for modified Burma Road Aviemore/Carrbridge circuits. Links Carrbridge/Boat of Garten and Burnside riding areas
Access from the North. From Carrbridge ride up Pinch Flat Hill trail, then through the forest and down the more usual climb access to Pinch flat hill to General Wades Military Road (GWMR). Cross straight over GWMR and through the horse/pedestrian deer fence gate and ride south, passing through another horse/pedestrian deer fence gate, then on to the end of the fairly new estate track which as of summer 2018 finishes just north east of Allt Lorgy and approximately 1km directly west of Beinn Ghuilbin summit. This connector trail/hike a bike, heads east in accent (or west in descent if coming from Burnside towards Carrbridge) and is a relatively short connect to the Coffin Road. The Coffin Road is marked on OS sheet 35 as a foot path but that trail has fallen into disrepair for the 500m before it joins the estate track marked on the OS35map. The estate track no longer ends where it meets the coffin road but has in the last few years been extended to the point described above.
A hike-a-bike in accent but almost ridable. could easily be made a good descent and accent.
