Grantown MTB Skills Park

AnagachMTB1There is a small skills park in the woods, it is close to the town

The area was designed as an extended skills area with multiple short trails that allow users to practice all the features they might face out on the trail. The trails are accessed off a circular loop(Lizards Loop), which encourages riders to ride the technical features and then loop round to repeat

Glenlivet Bike Trails

Glenlivet Bike Trails20 minutes away by car, close to Tomintoul, are the Glenlivet Bike Trails

There are 2 main trials a blue and red trail

 

Blue Trail

Glenlivet Blue is a 9K blue grade route suitable for all the family but exciting to ride with its twists and turns and great flow. The Blue is 'swoopy', sort of like a bobsleigh run stroke roller coaster ride. But it is blue so no deliberate jumps on it.

Red Trail

Glenlivet Red is a 22K red grade route with black grade technical features to keep the expert mountain biker entertained all year long! GlenlivetRed climbs to the summit of Carn Daimh, offering breathtaking views of the Cairngorms before plunging into the Glenlivet descent; 6.5K of single track downhill packed with black grade features and jumps. the red is tight n twisty, described as sort of 'Welsh' in places (think narrow full bench cut on a steep sideslope).

Pump Track

There is also a 75m progressive pump track at the trail head by the car park
