A fantastic route that combines some climbing to the top of Glentress on the Singletrack Mountain Bike Trails and then exiting Glentress Forest into an open and very long descent on twin track into the magnificent Leithen Valley.
We like… Amazing views of Leithen Valley and beyond , fun, blue and red -graded MTB trail climb before a lovely long descent , followed by easy gradients to complete the circuit, passing through Innerleithen High St.
Watch out for… Be prepared as you cycle into a remote area.
Wind damage trees across one track can be avoided by walking around them to the left you will join the forest road and turn right turning right ( see map). At your own risk.
