Description

Although the Glentrool Blue Route is moderate in both length and difficulty, it has a long, final descent which should appeal to riders who wouldn’t normally consider a route of this grade. The views are pretty good too!

Mostly off road, the purpose-built singletrack is wider than the trails at nearby Kirroughtree and has none of the rocks and roots found there, so it shouldn’t prove intimidating to less experienced riders.

It’s not without challenge though, as it climbs 218m to the Green Torr overlooking Loch Trool, before descending quickly back to the visitor centre.

The ascent is fairly gentle, with just a few steep snaps, but coming back down is steeper and you should make sure everyone knows how to use their brakes effectively.
