Meeting Place
Forest car park just off the B974 (marked as 'Primary Location' on MTBtrails.info above).

Trail Description
The ride starts with easy riding through the forest, then onto fire track, which includes a steep climb on the way to the top of Clachnaben. When at the top of Clachnaben you are rewarded with a good view (if the weather is nice) and a great descent. This decent includes the challenging technical sections with puncher hazardous man-made drain ditches. On sunny days this part of the route is popular with walkers, however most are happy to move out of the way and watch you attempt to stay on the bike. The final section is back through the forest to the car park.
