Really tough ascent from the north, with the steepest part of the track at the top comprising mostly small boulders, so plenty of hike-a-bike for all but the super fit. The descent to the south is s... read whole comment...

Description:-
The trail is all on forest trail roads and as such should be 100% rideable in good conditions, however in the snow the steeper up-hill sections are not.

Park at the picnic place, turn left out of the car park and take the next right down a access road. (beware of the single bar log gate when the sun is in your eyes after about 800m).
Continue down the forrest road to the gate, go over and onto the open moorland, taking the left trail heading up until you reach the forrest, then take the right hand trail, running with the forrest on the left, until it meets a gate. Go over. Right then left, up through the forrest. (In the snow this is a walk, but in the dry is steep but rideable).

Exit the forrest, and chontinue up and around the side of Kerloch and then down the other side into the forrest. Follow the trail road until it forks, take the right fork. Follow the trail road.

After about 2k, take the right trail road which continues up and then down running alongside a wall. This is a fast decent. Exit through the farm and then right turn on to the road, then back to the car park.
