Long, fast flowy trail that ends up in the (really good) cafe at Walkerburn. Short technical sections. Can be ridden to loop Caberston and Innerleithen. Long push up but worth it. Exit through a private farm, so be nice! These trails aren't built for the high numbers of users, and they're built by people on their own free time after work or on days off. Riding in big groups ruins these trails and they are unofficial - so the less impact on the land the better. If you're planning to organise a big group ride it would only be polite to talk to the builders - ask in the local bike shops. Some trails have been ruined by races...

Access Info

Follow the fire road from the caravan at the bottom of Boner. At the end, there's a turning circle. You can go straight ahead and do the lower part of the trail, or turn left and push up the hill.
