We came across this by chance and took the opportunity to explore. Huge free car park, well signposted walking and cycle trails. Beautiful scenery. We were also fortunate that it was a beautiful sunny day.

Brilliant trails, never fail to thrill. Enjoy the Freeride area, can't wait to see what they are building at the top of the Freeride. Nice café at the bottom of the trails, reasonably priced. Reasonably priced parking. Also have a go ape here now.

Absolutely love Glentress, great facilities, easy access and always a friendly atmosphere. Bike rental is available if you don't have your own bike but recommend that you pre-book. Great mixture of green/blue/red/black trails and the orange graded skills area. Something for everyone. The blues are...More
