The Elf serves as a great X-Country loop, or as a good warm-up ride in Balquhidder before going up to the trails on the North side of the Glen. It offers a rolling 900 or so metres with only a couple of technical parts. In the winter there are a couple of pretty wet sections which the local trail builders will attend to in 2018. Worth a ride...

Access Info

With Parking at Balquhidder Hall or the Kirk ride south up Glen Buckie and stop 30 metres before the cattle grid. The start of the trail is on your left.
