Ae Green mountain bike trail is an entry level mountain bike trail aimed primarily at families with young children. The 4km loop takes in sections of singletrack, mixed in with forest road, and is a really nice introduction to off-road mountain biking.

The trail runs up the Ae valley to a lovely viewpoint overlooking the Water of Ae - a beautiful place to stop and picnic, with lots of rocks around the river.

Returning down the valley, the trail passes through the Craigshiels outdoors centre site with a meadow on the left, then crosses back over the Water of Ae, with good views down the river off the bridge.

The finish is a twisty, gentle downhill swoop – back over the river again on the Naize bridge, before returning to the 7stanes car park.

The gradients on the trail are very easy, although there is one short, sharp climb on forest road.
