Description of trails:
The access road is available to ride down for those mainly looking for views, a warm up or to test out their bike prior to hitting the trails.
New for 2023 is a roughly 400m section parallel to the road, providing a true red trail top to bottom. This trail really keeps you on your toes with an even mix of fast flowy berms and sections of rock gardens, but all features are either rollable or have a ride around option.
This trail is over 1km long with over 200m vertical descent, and is built up of four sections of downhill trails, so you can pick and choose your way down. Or once you get to know the track a bit better, the whole thing. Less braking equals more fun!
Originally made in 2006 For the Scottish Downhill Association, it snakes its way down Meall a\’ Bhuiridh hillside alongside a stunning waterfall. This track now has a dedicated drop in and is designed around experienced downhill riders with technical terrain from top to bottom. You will encounter rock gardens, drops, exposed rock faces and jumps. This 900m long, 250m vertical descent trail is guaranteed to leave smiles ear to ear.
XC / Enduro Trails
Once at the top of our chairlift, you can use the access road to take a pedal to the cross country routes.
Nae Danger (blue)
Nae Danger is a perfect warm up to your riding experience at Glencoe. Starting from the top of the chairlift pedal your way up the land rover track towards our scenic Plateau Cafe (closed in summer). Ride your way over a mix of beautiful Scottish single track towards Craig Dhubh to then loop back towards the land rover track to finish this incredible 1.5km circuit.
Epic Glades (red)
Slightly further up the mountain lies our red cross country trail Epic Glades. This leg burner provides guaranteed fun. You are first tested to climb up past the Plateau Cafe (closed in summer) up past our new Rannoch chair. The road then ends and the track begins; a steep climb gets you to the top of Cliffhanger chairlift before levelling out as you go past the base of the top lifts, the ski patrol shed and the top of the wall T bar. Catch your breath on one of the most scenic parts of our resort before dropping into a veritable feast of thoroughbred red descent. Loose rocks, drops, catchy berm corners and stunning singletrack.
Follow the signs to get to the start of the descent. The track then follows the ridgeline with views out to Glen Etive and Buachaille Etive Mor before dropping back down and joining the blue cross country, then re-joining the access road.
Loop de Dhubh (black)
Continues on where Epic Glades leaves off; riding along the ridgeline until you loosely reach the summit of Creag Dhubh, where it’s worth stopping to take in the views. Then a short, steep, rocky section with several drops takes you back to the walkers track and back to the access road. Do look out for walkers.
Scotland mountain biking experience at Glencoe Mountain Resort offers steep, technical and rocky trails, great views and an amazing location.
