The Nevis Red Trail is a new downhill xc route starting at 643m at the base of the Quad chair (for those of you that ski or board here) the new trail winds its way across Aonach Mor's awesome mountainscape.
The newly built part of the trail ends at (gondola) Tower 8. There, you cross the downhill and join the forest road, then cut back on the puggy line, finishing down the sandy brae into the carpark.
