Mountain biking with bite!

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 our trail map to plan your rides.

The Upper Red Trails, Black Trail and Orange Fun Park Trails have now re-opened. The Lower Red Trail and the Green Trail are still closed due to harvesting operations. Please be aware that there may still be timber wagons operating in the area. Please observe all safety signage.

You don’t have to ride a bike to enjoy Laggan: the route to Dun da Lamh hill fort (currently closed, 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 easy, medium and hard semi-permanent orienteering courses. Buy your map (£3) at the Laggan Wolftrax Centre café or the Laggan Forest Trust office. These courses will be in the forest until the middle of June then will extend on to the moorland. During school breaks we set up an orienteering String Course suitable for adventurous toddlers to around 8 year olds.

For more information visit the Trust's website or call Joanna on 01528 544366. We look forward to seeing you.

Laggan makes a great base for exploring the beautiful countryside around. There are high, rounded hills, remote glens and a superb range of wildlife. Laggan Community web has details of things to do and places to stay.
