Descender Bender rivals Spooky Woods as my new favourite bit of a trail centre! Great trail.

A great route, felt a lot more 'natural XC' than the likes of Glentress which seems very mincured and up then down, this meandered up, across and down the terrain and it was very enjoyable. Worth anot... read whole comment...

A nice, varied route which is neither too physically demanding nor technically challenging. A perfect route for beginners ready to move on from blue-graded trails.

The phoenix trail has a good mixture of natural style rooty sections through the trees as well as some more obviously man made kitty litter sections, with well thought out berms, jumps, etc. Like Kirroughtree and Dalbeattie, Mabie has lots of little climbs and lots of little descents, rather than focussing on one big hill.

The route is well signposted - simply follow the red markers!
