With mostly rough terrain, this route is suitable for mountain bikes only. The hills are not too steep however and serve as a gentle introduction to mountain biking. With picturesque views over Glencorse Reservoir and the Edinburgh skyline, this is great route for a family outing.

Enjoyed this ride. Only thing I'd say is that the track down from Maidens Cleugh to Glencorse is VERY deeply rutted. I ride a 29er and if i had been on something smaller, at times I'd not have managed................

Fab - did it from the Bar on A702...even managed to get City Cabs to put my bike in their taxi from Central Edinburgh (£15). Not too taxing....some nice fast downhill sections and absolutely something for a summer evening after work / school....whatever!
