Mabie Forest, the original mountain biking venue in the south west of Scotland.
Mabie lies just a few miles south of Dumfries and caters for beginners right through to the most expert of riders.
Mabie forest is strikingly beautiful and has something for everyone - with a skills area, cafe, bike hire and shop on site it has everything you could need for a great day's riding.
A skills area with different-graded trails gives a taste of Mabie riding for those new to the area or looing to move up a trail grade. It also includes a fantastic 300m freeride line with plenty of sections for you to practise your jumping technique.
Choose your trail from:
The green-graded Big Views and the blue-graded Woodhed loops
Give a great introduction to mountain biking and Mabie's striking surroundings.
The forest road Purple Trail - Lochbank Loops
Is a mixture of forest road and some b-class public road. Worth the climb for the spectacular views.
The red-graded Phoenix Trail
Is a classic mountain bike route - great riding through mixed woodland and wonderful scenery.
Turn to the Dark Side
An orange bike park-graded trail. Mostly on narrow elevated wooden "North Shore" sections and spiced with outcrops of granite, it is firmly for the experts.
