Mountain biking in Laggan Wolftrax is a pretty spectacular, with breathtaking views and good bike hire facilities, with plans to develop a new uplift service next year!
The 4.8km green route is definitely more than a forest road trail and, although easy riding, has enough twists and turns to keep it interesting. If you’ve had a bit of a drive, it’s an ideal leg loosener. The 15km red route is a split affair with an upper and lower section. The upper, although sharing an initial climb with the black, is a fairly smooth and, dare we say it, slightly dull affair. You can certainly carry speed through it though.
The lower is far more fun and will definitely have you riding repeat laps. It includes the black-graded Air’s Rock, which is much like The Slab at Dalbeattie, mountain biking in Laggan Wolftrax gives you plenty of rock gardens and an excellent bermy timber boardwalk to finish.
The 10km black route is a technical rider’s delight. Drop-offs, stone staircases, boulder fields, rock slabs and no chicken runs. It’s all rideable without dabbing, but you’ve got to be good. Finally there’s the 3.6km bike park. After gaining height on a gentle forest road, it’s then a fast, fun and jumpy return. Proficient riders will get big air but it’s all rollable for novices too.
