Description:-
Aviemore is a centre for tourism in the area. Busy in the winter with skiers, and in the summer with everyone else. It has more than its fair share of outdoor activity shops and a couple of good bike shops (Bothy Bikes & Fat Tread Bikes). It also has a pretty good Tesco if your looking for general supplies (but it can be crazy busy in there at the weekend with people stocking up for their upcoming week’s holiday).

Aviemore sits right on the edge of the Cairngoms National Park, and is surrounded by stunning scenery and beautiful mountains (not least of which is Cairngorm itself). There are loads of great trails in the area which are great for mountain biking.

Description:-
This is the classic route around Avimore. The route is not technical but has a long climb so you must be a well fit. After climbing waiting for us a beautiful view.

The road we begin and end in the car park at Rothiemurchus. This is not a large car park but there is always a free space. Near the car park is very friendly shop Bothy Bikes and restaurant where you can eat, when you return.
Go up toward the Aviemore. The beginning is on the main road so you have to be careful.
1. Crossing the busy A9 road be careful.
2. Continue along the minor road until Altnacriche.
3. Reaching Altnacriche turn right crossing gate. From this point begins a long climb to 4. the memorial Alaistair Polson which is a beautiful view to the east. From there begins a rapid descent that ends with at the river Dulnain.
5. After crossing the river turn right and then continue riding a on a small path along the river. The path is muddy, but you can meet local wildlife.
6. At the junction go right.
7. The path will lead you to a T junction where you can turn right and you can reach a path (NCN Sustrans Route &) to Kinveachy, or you can turning left and reach General Wade's Military Road, on which is 8. Sluggan Bridge. After crossing the bridge trail will lead you to Kinveachy.
8. Again crossing the busy A9 road be careful. Then, leaving Kinveachy go along rail tracks where you can see a historic steam train. After a short time we are back in Aviemore from the main road leads us to the car park.

Description:-
The trail that leads to an isolated lake Einich, and back. It is well marked. The surface is varied from paved to rocky trails but several crossings by streams can challenge you.

The trail starts from the parking Rothiemurchus, along the main road.
1. Reaching the campsite, turn right. The trail begins to climb slowly.
2. At the junction go straight to Gleann Einich. The trail becomes more rocky.
3. After the first stream at the fork, you can select the path to the right uphill. There is more climbing but there are nice views of the surrounding area, then it is very fast downhill. Finally, the trails connect. After that start the burns. Some are deep so be careful. Finally you get to the Loch Einich, surrounded by huge mountains. View of the buttresses Sgoran Dubh Mor and Sgor Gaoith is great. The road back is fun, fast downhill.
2. At the junction go left and you get to the Loch Eilein. Then the marked trail, you go back to the parking lot.

Description:-
One of the multitude of options available when touring the paths and trails around the forests of Glenmore & Rothiemurchus at Aviemore.

This route follows the road up the cyclepath at the start, which gets you a good gain in height, but over a long gradual slope so you don't really notice that you're climbing all the time.
I included a trip to Ryvoan bothy and back which has a wee climb on the approach to the bothy, but nothing too tough. Of course you could just leave this bit out.

Starting at the car park at Rothiemurchus get on to the cycle/foot path next to the B970 and head east, crossing the road at tag 2 and continuing along the cyclepath in the forest beside the road, to tag 3. The surface to this point is pretty much hardpacked and relatively smooth all the way. At tag 3, cross the access road off the main road, and continue through the woods to tag 4 along the roadway. As the road turns left, take a right to get you to tag 4, and turn left onto the path again.

Follow the path to tag 5, and turn right onto the forestry road to tag 6, where you cross over the road to the ski centre. Turn right in the car park, and head west where you'll pick up a path again at the end of the car park. Follow this through the woods and when you emerge turn left to the bridge over the the River Luineag. There's an unlocked gate here for cycle / pedestrian access to the road to Rothiemurchus Lodge.

Follow the hardpacked road to tag 8, and turn left following the shore of Loch Morlich to tag 9. Here you turn right onto the track that heads away from the loch around the back of the small wooded hill. As you round the back of the hill and start to descend, look out for the track joining in from the right, as just after this is a singletrack path off into the trees at tag 10. Follow this singletrack above the shores of the loch, to where it emerges onto the forestry track, where you turn left and head downhill to tag 11. At 11 keep right and emerge to cross the ski centre road and turn left onto the path behind the trees at tag 12.

Follow this path parallel to the road to the car park at tag 13, and follow the track from here along the riverbank. At tag 14 turn left and climb sharply up the path through the trees where you emerge near to Glenmore Lodge. Stay on this path as it drops down into the trees again, before turning onto a track that approaches Glenmore Lodge.

Before you reach the lodge, turn sharp right onto the path at tag 15, and follow this route as it circles the lodge, emerging onto a hardpacked track, and carry on up the glen to tag 16.

From 16 to 17 it's an easy route along a fairly flat hardpacked forest track up an ever increasingly narrow glen, that emerges at the Green Lochan. From tag 17 to Ryvoan at 18, the track starts to climb, and gets rougher and rougher as it gets nearer the bothy. There is one 100m section that is all loose stones and rock, and can be a fairly challenging climb. Momentum is your friend here. Once you've admired the view, retrace your route to tag 16, and turn left on the forest track.

Stay on this track all the way to tag 20, where you cross the burn and emerge beside another car park for the ski road. Follow the path back to tag 12, and cross the road again to tag 11, and turn right. Follow this track for 100m, and turn left onto the singletrack and continue to tag 21, turning left towards the shores of Loch Morlich, before emerging onto the forestry road at tag 22. Turn right here and follow the forestry track back to tag 9 and tag 8.

Follow the access road to Rothiemurchus Lodge to tag 23, and turn right onto the singletrack that runs through the woods to tag 24 where you turn left heading to the crossroads at tag 25. Keep straight on here past 26 & 27, until you get to tag 28 where you turn left to take the long way around Loch an Eilean. This section from 23 to 28 is all pleasant easy riding through the forest.

The section from tag 28 to 29 around the back of Loch an Eilean is very similar, but there are a few places where you can use rocks or banks beside the path for some small jumps etc if the need takes you. Keep right at 29, following the loch to tag 30 and turn right around the end of the loch, before turning left away from Loch Morlich for the last time. Between tags 29 & 30 you'll get good views of the castle ruins on the island.

When you turn away from the loch, there are plenty of paths and routes through the trees here, so make your own way towards tag 31 and the road.

Follow the singletrack tarmac road to tag 32 and turn right onto the track between the buildings, that fades into a singletrack route through the forest back to tag 33 and the car park at Rothiemurchus.

Description:-
A gentle ride along the road in Glen Feshie followed by a more strenuous ride back through Inshriach. This is the route described in Kenny Wilson's book.

The route starts with a road ride along Glen Feshie. At Tag 1 you double back on a fireroad starting to climb up into the hills. At Tag 2 take the right fork, this can be boggy in wet weather. At Tag 3 there are numerous trails within the Inshriach forest, we just climbed to the top of the hill and made our way back down again, probably worth exploring a bit more.

Description:-
A long ride starting at Bothy Bikes. Head along the road through Columbridge to Tag 1 and turn left onto the B970. Follow the road to Tag 2 and turn right onto a farm track and slowly climb up to the Badaguish Outdoor Centre at Tag 3. You have a choice to take the left turn and climb up to the top of the fireroad and do the Badaguish singletrack that you will see criss-crossing the fire road.

From Badaguish follow the fire road to the Glenmore Centre (a good place for lunch) and cross the road into Rothiemurchus. At Tag 4 we went left but it would have been better to have gone right. If you still have the energy a diversion up the Lairig Ghru is well worth the effort - ride up as far up as you feel able, then follow your footsteps for a sublime singletrack descent! Next follow the forest path around Loch an Eilein back to the car park

Description:-
A shorter version of the Burma Road route, if you've only go a couple of hours to kill. Basically up the hill, across a bit, and straight back down again !

The less abridged description goes like this..........

Starting at the Rothiemurchus car park, head along the B970 back twards Aviemore, turn left at the roundabout ( tag 1 ) and carry on along the B9152 for about a mile and turn right at tag 2 towards the A9.

Cross the A9 to tag 3, turn right along the A9 for 50m or so, and turn left off the road at tag 4 towards Lynwilg farm. Pass the farm bulidings along the track to tag 5 where the Burma Road route is signposted to the left. Follow this access road to Altnacriche for about 600m, before turning off to the right through the gate and the start of the climb up the Burma Road itself.

You've now got about 2.5miles of continuous ascent up the Burma Road to the summit at about 700m up. The track is in pretty good condition, compacted and quite smooth in places, with only the occasional rough bits here and there, but very little loose material on the surface. Traction is never a problem, it just seems to go on for ever ! You do have a great view opening up behind you towards the Cairngorms though, so it's a good excuse to stop and take in the view, and some air !

Just before you reach the very summit of the track, you'll see the singletrack heading off to your left at tag 7. Once you've got your breath back, take this left turn and cut across the hill, with a slight downhill gradient towards tag 8. The section between tags 7 & 8 can be a bit soft and peaty in places, but it's definitely all rideable, unless it's been very wet.

Once at tag 8 the trail turns more directly downhill, and you have an excellent long blast ahead of you all the way back down to the road. The surface varies from hardpacked to the occasional bit of mud, some rocks and some grassy sections as well. There are numerous opportunities to get some air as well.

At tag 9 there is a steeper little section down to the field behind Ballinluig farm, before you level out at tag 10. Cross the grassy field to the gate at tag 11, and join the farm track to the farm buildings at tag 12, where you join the tarmac farm road. Follow this road to tag 13 and turn right, crossing under the A9 and joining the shores of Loch Alvie. At tag 14 turn right and follow this road to Ballinluig Cottage and the junction with the B9152.

Turn left here and follow this road back to tag 2, and then tag 1 and the car park where you started.

Description:-
Trails at the back of the Badaguish outdoor centre. The guys in Bothy bikes told me that the singlespeed worlds were held here a few years ago.
Short, fun, singletrack descents with some techie lines - great flat out.
If you find yourself in Aviemore with your other half and she's not into the whole mtb thing but fancies a cycle, I've found this ideal...easy cycle up the aviemore cycle paths, drop her off at the cafe in Badaguish and then bang out a few laps at full speed. Finish off with a pint at the Bridge Inn (where the route starts and ends).

Points
1 - take a right here through the outdoor centre to start the climb
2 - the more technical line, interesting rock gardens, off camber, singletrack, etc
3 - flowing singletrack with a couple of interesting technical bits; the trick is to keep your speed through them
4 - flowing descent to the bottom, follow the road, join up with point 1 and do a couple more laps before you hit the pub

Note - there's a bunch of stuff to the NE of points 2 and 3 but unfortunately the only gpx I could find didn't have them mapped out. Explore - its half the fun :-)

Previously labelled as "Lairig Ghru Circuit", this track combines two of Scotlands most famous hill passes - the Lairig Ghru ("larrig groo") and the Lairig an Laoigh ("larrig an loowie").

The path at the highest points of the Lairig an Laoigh are very rough. The path at the highest points of the Lairig Ghru become rough and then non-existent as it follows a boulderfield (and does not pass through the Chalamain Gap). Paths are otherwise good to excellent, although it should be noted that this route passes through some of the most remote areas of Scotland. Suitable equipment and experience is required.

Description:-
Trail starts at Glenmore Lodge. Travelling east of Bynack More. At Fords of Avon turn right (heading west) and continue along path to western most tip of Loch Avon. From there, head south east, passing Loch Etchachan on the right and reaching the Hutchison Memorial hut. From the bothy, continue down the trail to Glen Derry on a southerly heading towards Derry lodge.

From Derry Lodge, take a south east heading, following a river on your right hand side (Lui Water). After approximately 2 km take a left turn (after crossing a small burn) and follow it along the Clais Fhearnaig. Continue along this trail until it reaches a land rover track. Turn right, crossing a burn, then turn right again after 100m (approx) on to a single track trail. Follow this path up through the forest, continuing past the tree line in a SSE direction. Continue following this trail until the trail merges with another single track following the tree line on Doire Bhraghad. After approximately 1km, it crosses and double track and continues across open ground and then a ford, until Marr Lodge.

From Marr Lodge cross the victoria bridge across the Dee and then on to the tarmac road heading towards Braemar.
