Glentress Blue - Upper loop

From the Buzzards Nest the route follows a forest road gently downhill then joins a singletrack climb shared with the Red Route, with some tight hairpin turns. A further switchback climb follows, with even tighter turns and some steep pitches which will test your strength. From here the route follows a forest road climb further up into the forest.

Burma Road Alternative

Burma Road Alternative

A shorter version of the Burma Road route, if you've only got a couple of hours to kill. Basically up the hill, across a bit, and straight back down again! Note that the descent is quite technical and steep, so be prepared to walk your bike through some passages.

Glentress Blue - Lower loop

Glentress Blue - Lower loop

The route has had extra sections of singletrack added over time, carefully crafted with Blue Route riders firmly in mind. The result makes climbing from the trailhead to the Buzzards Nest car park a much easier, more enjoyable experience, and the descent back down a whole lot of fun!

Badaguish

Badaguish

Trails at the back of the Badaguish outdoor centre. Short, fun, singletrack descents with some techie lines - great flat out. 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
