Middleden Trails are a set of mountain bike trails in Middleden Woods just opposite Kirkcaldy High School in Kirkaldy in Scotland. There are a set of short green, blue and red graded trails as well as orange graded dirt jumps.

The trails are about 5km in total. They can be linked and mixed and matched together.

Green Revolver MTB Trail

  • Nice short family trail through the forest.

Blue MTB Trails

  • The blue tracks can be connected together using the multi-use paths. 'Pistol Whip' is a flowing  singletrack trail running through the forest. Using the multi-use path you climb to start of  the 'Take Aim' track which has flowing  singletrack and a slightly raised (6 inches) boardwalk. Then you head back on the mulit user trails to the 'Barrell Roll' track joining on the left which is fast, flowing with many berms, tight corners and a water feature. Then back on the main path to return.

Red MTB Trails

  • These kick off just off from the Green trail. Starting with the 'Get A Grip' track it is twisty with dips and climbs. Then you can head on to the 'Trigger Trail 'which is more technical with drop-offs, roots and boardwalk. Finally on the way back to the entrance there is 'The Deer Track' with short climbs, tight Singletrack and flowing rolling jumps on its descent.

Dirt Jumps

  • A set of  3 dirt jumps.

Groups and Clubs

  • Middleden MTB Club maintain the trails, organise trips and run a number of club activities.

Other Stuff

  • The trails were made possible from Fife Coast and Countryside Trust working alongside the Middleden MTB club. 
  • It's estimated 159 volunteers from FCCT, Middleden MTB Club and the Prince’s Trust put in over 700 hours to make the 5 km of trails.
  • Middleden Trails were designed and built by Rik Allsop.

Short but very sweet.

A good spot to hammer around in short loops or work on some skills.
