we are regular visitors to glentress forest. normally we do the red route but we decided to give the blue a go.
we followed the outward red route to spooky wood as no visit to glentress is complete without the lungbusting climb up spooky and then the fast fun sweeping descent!
at the bottom of spooky wood you turn left for the blue route and come to a fast section that winds down the hill, not much happens but then i guess it is blue route!!!
its not until you get about halfway down the blue route that you find really enjoyable trails starting with blue velvet then berm baby berm which finishes at the buzzards nest car park and the freeride park which is worth a visit.
after youve finished playing the trails start again with Electric Blue, Falla Brae and Good Game which are my 3 favorite sections. this takes you back down to the start

I'm only 45 minutes from Glentress so it's my back garden if you like.

Glentress and Innerleithen is where I ride .It's all good at Glentress trails for skill levels and young and old you just have to get out there day or even at night which is sheer magic . There are wigwams you can book at Glentress sorry don't know the price.
£5 you can park all day in any of the three car parks . at Alpine bikes you can hire full suspension or hard tail and they will have all your mtb needs .bike wash,toilets and showers facilities available take £10 in £1 coins with you that will be enough . then once your all cleaned up there is the Peel cafe for some great food the rest is up to you if you do go have a great time.
Also be prepared for some aches and pains especially around the face area because you will be smiling from the start to the very end of your day at Glentress .
Almost forgot about GoApe where you can get up in the trees.

Glentress has a proper trail head, showers, cafe, bike shop, bike wash, camping pods, everything you need. The trails are great, the black is challenging, Spooky wood makes anybody and everybody smile. The blue trails have great flow and a experienced rider can carry a lot of speed - seriously, try the blue's they are more fun than you think.
Bad Points
It takes me 3-4 hours to get there.

£5 for parking isn't cheap but I guess they gotta make their money somehow. (hopefully they are saving up for a gondola :)

Great to learn how to ride. Fun and safe. Great facilities. Even after years of riding harder /different stuff i came back recently and had great fun.
Bad Points
Too many people now.
A bit clinical and predictable (although this was a plus point when I was learning how to jump/drop/berm etc)

I am really fortunate in that I live across the road from Glentress so accessibility is good. I would recommend anyone looking to get a clear run hits the hills early as can get quite busy especially in the hotter months.
