Kirkhill Mountain Bike Trails are just a few miles out from Aberdeen in North East Scotland. There is a short blue graded purpose built MTB fun park and 11 km's of family friendly waymarked single-track and fire-road to keep you entertained.
Given the mix of the two trails it is both family friendly and offers the intermediate riders something also.
MTB Fun Park
- The specific carved out blue graded trail here is only 1.6km (1 mile) long and has a number of features packed into it's short length from jumps, bumps, berms and switchbacks. The trail kicks off with a climb through woodland before descending.
- The 11km (about 7 mile) long Kirkhill Loop is a family friendly waymarked trail. It starts from the MTB fun park and climbs up the fire-road to Tappie Tower at the summit of Tyrebagger Hill. Then is descends gently for the remaining 4 or so miles back to the car park. There is a choice of 3 single-track sections leading from the tower back on to the Kirkhill Loop.
- The short 0.8km (½ mile) south spur starts from the MTB Fun Park and follows the white markings of the Kirkhill Loop too a steep, rough, rocky and rooty track for more experienced riders.
- The North Spur is a multi user track and shared by horses, walkers and cyclists leads slightly uphill from the East Woodlands car park to the Kirkhill Loop. It's also waymarked with white markers.
- The MTB Fun Park opened in March 2005 and is still going strong.
