This place will offer a good short ride for any ability bikers. If you are not sure how you can use it's max potential just ask locally. Great vibe about bikes in Alyth. It's a trail a short drive away from Forfar, Coupar Angus and Dunkeld area, so quite a lot variety available if you are staying for a full day or more.

Good Points
Alyth Bike Park it might be small but it also quite new. Saying it, riding there now quite few times with local bikers you can find out that there is so much more than expected. A lovely blue/red trail, pump track but also plenty of cross country and enduro trails nearby. They are running kids mtb classes there too, in the summer time and guided trips and coaching courses. Just check locally for the companies,s names, dates, etc...

Good Points
The thing about sultry is that it's a small community that have been after the trails for years so everyone is welcome. You have one main trail but you can venture over to the top of the hill and you suddenly find loads of fun technical and flowing trails all hand made. The community wanted it and the people built it.
Bad Points
There are no toilets at the moment. Trails at the back of hill are hidden.
