We went from the Dalbeattie town part of the forest as better for walkers and dogs (2 mins in car). What a lovely walk this is in the forest and there is a nice Loch too. Really worth a visit if your in the area.

Spent a couple of hours round the red route. Nothing to technical and really good flowing natural trails. Thoroughly enjoyed the trails and would recommend.

I was really impressed with the natural feel of the trails here. It offered a great mix of singletrack and fire roads and loads of additional black rated sections. The trails were in really good condition and it's well signposted all the way. Great day...More

Well planned course without massive climbs. Lots of undulation and some interesting features. Basic toulet facilities, plenty of car park space (£3 coins for full day parking), and a lovely little cafe. Hose for washing bikes also there. Be careful near end as dog walkers...More

Awesome place to ride and walk miles and miles of forest area. Natural features for MTB using rocks etc. Can walk from gorse bank camp site to kippford. Great location Worth the trip! One of the best MTB courses I've ridden Go and visit!

We're fairly novice riders and we think a lot of visitors here would be experienced mountain bikers but the taster loops were excellent. Excellent signposting but probably not for beginner riders. The older kids loved this and of course there's the famous slab.
