A classic single track down hill which is fast and natural with great views. Back in the day of 26rs this hill was notorious for pinch flats, few groups rode it with out at least one person getting a flat from the sneaky sharp rocks. Now with 27.5 and 29r's there are a lot less flats. A great trails which links well into loops of the Carrbridge Trails. This is one of the best here. Also a good technical climb.

Access Info

Whilst most people access this from the tracks in the woodland to the south, coming up from General Wades Military Road this trail also works as a good technical climbing challenge if approaching from the Carrbridge side.
