As at the start of 2018 the "Hippy - Upper" is the top of the full "Hippy" trail which also includes the "Hippy - Mid" and "Hippy - Lower" sections. The "Upper" incorporates a section in the forestry quarry with three rocks - A challenging section that verges on a black grading, particularly the drop off the first rock. Recce the quarry section before riding it! 2018 may see a new "High Hippy" section added above the "Hippy - Upper" which will take the full ride well over 1.3km.

Access Info

Park at Balquhidder Hall or Kirk and access using forestry roads
