There are two FC car parks for Dalbeattie - the "Town Woods" car park and the Richorn carpark. The latter, situated at the trailhead, is the designated 7Stanes car park and has a hose and brush beside the trail map board. Starting in Rockcliffe or Colvend are alternatives to the official car park to the 7stanes rides in Dalbeattie forest.

Cafes, shops, toilets and accommodation may be found less than a mile away in Dalbeattie village, whilst the nearest bike shops are Castle Douglas Cycle Centre and Next Level Bikes in Castle Douglas.

In terms of riding, Dalbeattie offers a good mix of firetrack, offroad and some technically challenging bits including the slab and terrible twins. The way marked trails include a green, blue and red-graded trail with numerous black options. There is also a skills area and short taster loop.

Overall comments about Dalbeattie forest

Love Dalbeattie - quieter than a lot of trail centres, yet offers excellent riding and much of the forest has a very natural feel to it. Can recommend Gorsebank Wigwams as a place to stay.
