Route Description

A beautiful view over the Tay with a really easy (Green) loop which should be suitable for all abilities including young children, even on balance bikes. A great place to start your mountain biking journey. Option to test your ability on some technically difficult (Red) but not steep trails.

There are two starting points:
For the easy (Green) loop, cycle from the village and look for the entrance across from the Medical Centre. Follow the built trail around the forest.

For the more difficult (Red) loop, start at the Backmuir Woods car park and follow the trails around the perimeter of the woods. Please note this is a popular route for walkers so be sure they hear you coming with a friendly hello or tinkle of the bell. Be ready to stop if necessary.
