Black Craigs Mountain Bike Trail combines fast, flowing singletrack and rocky, technical features to test your skills. A highlight is McMoab, with its huge slabs and ridges of exposed granite, linked by boulder causeways.

To reach the start of Black Craigs, follow the red-graded Twister trail to its half-way point.
