STORM DAMAGE MEANS THIS ROUTE IS CURRENTLY NOT PASSABLE. A good route for mixing a bit of waymarked MTB trail riding with some natural cross-country trails in the western section of Glentress Forest. Can be a bit muddy in some sections when wet but a good route with options for riding some black XC trail and also some off-piste for the more confident rider.
We like… good varied route with extensive views over to Edinburgh and Fife on a good day from Venlaw. Also options to ride more challenging sections and some challenging off-piste trails nearby. Great descent from Venlaw down into Peebles
Watch out for… Some really muddy sections and probably best avoided when wet or during the winter months.
