The Trails

The blue trail is popular with bikers of all ages and abilities

BikeGlenlivet has something for everyone. The blue trail is a great introduction to cross country riding, while the red trail provides challenges for the experienced. The pump track next to the café is also great for a bit of practice or a warm up.

The blue trail

The blue route is perfect for novice to intermediate mountain bikers (although the experienced bikers love it too!), it's a fun packed friendly route. There are climbs but you'll be rewarded with great downhill sections of sweet, flowing trail, with some exciting features, but not too technical. 

The red trail

The red trail is a little more challenging but has spectacular scenery, and a fast flowing single track trail across moorland and through woodland.

As a rough guide; the fit experienced mountain bikers have been completing the circuit in around 20mins, an average rider usually takes around 45mins, families with children 1.5 hours to all day!
