Laggan’s red route is a trail of two halves. To the south it snakes down the hillside, sharing the track with the black run to the Wolf’s Lair viewpoint. From there it’s downhill on fast, narrow single track. To the north there are lots of enjoyably testing rock features like the Rib Rattler and Air’s Rock – a Black-graded slab which you can by-pass if it looks too severe. Near the bottom, the Wolf Run is a fun 300 yards of timber boardwalk through the trees.

      Some puddles still prevalent but running mostly dry. Possibility of slippery rock slabs but good fun.

       Nice and long trail, beginning with singletrack uphill and from the top of the hill the descent starts with flowy berms and some small jumps/drops, last part of the trail in the lower woods is the best part, fast and flowy singletrack undulating in the forest...
