The green trail is family friendly as an introduction to the sport and connects onto the blue with a footpath feel.
The blue trail is a family friendly 7km ride.
The red trail has steeper slopes, on narrow single-track which as a loop also onto connects onto the jump park
The jump park has eight table tops, bermed corners and gap jumps.
Together the Abriachan trails are known as the Kelpies' Trails - after the famous and mythical local water horse.
The Abriachan Trail centre is owned by the Abriachan Forest Trust community who in 1998 purchased the 534 hectares of forest. They are a Trust owned by the 140 local inhabitants scattered around the rural community. As a social enterprise they have created a network of paths, MTB trails and educational opportunities.
