Looking for your mountain biking fix without having to tackle big rocks and steep downhill? Then take a trip to renowned 7stanes site Glentrool in the beautiful Galloway Forest Park. Park at the visitors centre and take to the green marked Glen trail, a short and easy going cycle path around Palnashgel Glen or head up the Green Torr, a purpose built singletrack route that climbs for 218 metres to stunning views over Loch Trool. These trails are perfect for less experiences or new mountain bikers and don’t require any specialist kit, just a bike with good tyres and a properly fitted helmet.
