A Day at Wolftrax - Laggan
We had a great day out mountain biking today at Laggan Wolftrax Mountain Bike Park.
Located just 35 miles north of Pitlochry, Wolftrax has everything from family track to black runs for seriously experienced mountain bikers.
Laggan Wolftrax has nearly 35km of the most up-to-date, year-round singletrack available in the country.
Set in the outstanding natural highland beauty of Strathmashie Forest, Wolftrax provides a green-graded beginners' trail, the thrills of a big-and-bermy Bike Park, a fast red-graded route packed with features and a black-graded trail that's possibly the most technical of its type in Scotland.
For novices and young children, the 4.8km green trail, featuring real singletrack, is a perfect introduction to mountain biking.
The Bike Park has 3.6km of trail. Novices can trundle or freewheel from top to bottom, but more skilled riders will rip up this route and find 'big air' opportunities all the way down! Not recommended for very young children.
The black route is 6.4km of tight, singletrack trail with multiple features! Watch out for serious drop offs, boulder fields and rock slabs aplenty!
Yours truly at the end of the red route
Designed to be fast and flowing, the 15km red route is a fantastic experience in two sections, enjoyably testing and rideable.
