  • Fun fun fun. Love this place. Spooky is awesome, but plenty of Blue options too. Good cafe and facilities so the whole family can tag along.
  • Excellent varied mountain biking, great progression from fun blue routes to exciting reds. I haven't tried the black route yet but it's supposed to be good
  • Excellent purpose built mountain bike trails, extensive walking paths ample parking and a great cafe. Heaven for mountain bikers with a well stocked bike shop. Graded trails from easy family pedals to full on black circuit and pike Park + Innerleithen downhill trails just a short drive away. Cafe is great wide selection of "proper" food as well as lovely cakes and coffee. Showers and bike wash for those muddy days.
  • Mountain bikers paradise. Waymarked trails for all levels. Well stocked bike shop with bike hire and a decent cafe for after your ride.
  • Great variety of trails, and it's free at the point of use.
