This trail starts off on forest road in Alltcailleach Forest where you climb to the edge of the forest. Just after you burst out of the woodland the singletrack starts which is superb. Finishes by going through some forest with swoopy overgrown forest road where you can build up a lot of speed. Watch out for boggy section at start of singletrack.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

      Very boggy at the top for first 100 to 150m, but you can easily bypass the bog.
