Laggan Wolftrax mountain bike trails are in Strathmashie Forest, in the Scottish Highlands. On offer here is a 5km Green trail, a 15km Red trail, a 6.4km intense Black trail and an Orange graded Bike Park.

A Forest Visitors Centre opened at Laggan Wolftrax in April 2015.

The centre includes a cafe, toilets, showers and an office.

The Wolftrax Green

  • The 4.8km Green trail is actually enjoyed by riders of all abilities as it has real tree lined singletrack in it. It is though clearly focused on novices and young children. It runs between the Laggan Wolftrax hub and the community-owned Gorstean car park.

The Wolftrax Red

  • The 15km Red graded trail starts just past the Bike Park. It is made up of two sections, the Upper Red Route and the Lower Red Trail. 
  • The Upper Red Route section shares the climb with the Black trail and then adds it's own fast descent with optional features. The Lower Red Trail section has a multitude of features. It is on narrow black shale with embedded rock obstacles, drop-offs, rock causeways, boardwalk and lots of tough little technical climbs. It is renowned for features such as the challenging Air’s Rock, a slab similar to 'The Slab' at Dalbeattie, and the natural rock features of the Bhadain Boulder Field.

The Wolftrax Black

  • The black route is 6.4km of very tight, very technical, single-track with big drop offs, boulder fields, rock steps and rock slabs. It's built for the rider that is ready to commit! Renowned features include the "2 Ton Drop" and the "Back, Sack and Crack Attack" (a  triple rock slab feature). There is also the Devil’s Chessboard, a 40-metre rock slab staircase with 24 different levels. NB This trail is actually much longer as it includes at least half the Red.

The Wolftrax Bike Park (Orange)

  • The Bike Park has 3.6km of Orange graded trail. The track is wide with a sealed-surface featuring big berms, tabletops and gap jumps. Novices can still ride it as it is all rollable. It is built with progression in mind up from the novice to the advanced rider.

I love the variety of grades, since it means my husband can enjoy the black and red courses, I can have an exciting time as well.
Great facilities, bike wash, parking, cafe , toilets and showers.

User Review

Good Points
The lower section of the Orange is very exciting, I'm planning in having a go on the top section as well during my next two week trip to The Highlands in September 2017. My comments are based on riding a recumbent trike around the routes. Visited in Sept 2015, & 2016.
Bad Points
There in no blue graded trail.
The Green trails has good points, but the down hill section is very narrow, with no choice on the best approach to the next feature. I ride an ICE Adventure HD recumbent trike, which is 39" ( one meter wide), hence my need for a wider trail

Good Points
The best trail centre in Scotland! I think it has been the best since it first opened - amazing trails and amazing atmosphere at the cafe/shop at the bottom. I have ridden here since I was 10 and the trails have not once got boring - they are well designed for all types of rider to progress - especially the fantastic old red.
Bad Points
This isnt really a bad point just more of a comment...but I would ask the Forestry Commission to put some more money and energy into keeping the trails in always great condition and to build some new trails - surely they can invest some money back into this from the large pot they must surely have from the car park charges all over Scotland!

Happy berm hunting

Nice one Laggan, keeping me going through soggy winters in the Strath.

User Review

Good Points
Good car park, skills area, cruisy climb up a straightforward fire road. Techy climbing/traversing to the top of the Red and Black. Flowing red through open hillside or techy, twisty singletrack on the black.

Smiles for miles on a million huge berms on the orange: the best place to practice your cornering.

Friendly, lovely people in the cafe and delicious cake. Winning.
Bad Points
Shame the Lower Red was damaged in storms and never repaired, but still plenty to go at!
