Balblair Mountain Biking Trails

There are two trails to chooses from. The two-mile option is an enjoyable quick blast through the trees for competent riders looking to improve their bike handling skills and an ideal warm up for experts attempting the Balblair Black.

Terrain description: Mostly wide gravel paths with some loose sections and long, gentle-to-moderate slopes. Can be muddy when wet.

The 4/5-mile black run is a fun and memorable black with technical rock features and fast-flowing downhill. The full, lung-busting climb up Cnoc an Tionail (knock an tinnell - hillock of the gathering) gives you spectacular views before a rock slab descent down Candy Mountain that'll test even the most courageous! The route follows the Blue Trail at the start and finish.

Terrain description: Mostly loose gravel single track with sections of bare rock and boardwalk. Can be muddy and very steep in places.
