Laggan Wolftrax

Learn to fly at Laggan Wolftrax

Over 20 miles (35 km) of purpose-built trails wind through Laggan Forest, with superb views of the Monadhliath hills on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park.

There are routes from an easy-going green trail to a black run that’s probably the most technical bit of single-track in Scotland. In the bike park you can ride big berms and tabletop jumps. Check out the Laggan Wolftrax trail map to plan your rides.

Mountain biking trails

You don’t have to ride a bike to enjoy Laggan: the route to Dun da Lamh hill fort (see walk tab) makes a great walk as well as a cycle ride. It’s one of the best-preserved hill forts in the Highlands, with impressive walls and superb views of the countryside around.

Working in partnership with Forestry Commission Scotland, local community group Laggan Forest Trust has developed a number of other trails to explore in the forest.

Come and try the semi-permanent orienteering easy, medium, medium+ and hard courses. If you would like to test your speed on a course using your mobile, download The iOrienteering App. On the app you can scan the course QR code and off you go - scanning each control as you find it. When you finish, use the app to download your results. The hard course includes the moorland until Easter.

Fun courses for adventurous toddlers to 8 year olds. The current theme is 'What did the teddy bears have on their picnic?'. Follow the string to find all the pictures on the map and win prizes.
