The red trail at Mabie benefits from one of the most fun sections in the whole of the 7 Stanes- Descender Bender, a great flowing section in three parts with many berms and jumps. The final traverse/descent is good but beware the Bad Step.

The route is mostly less technical than the other Stanes and the surroundings are slightly different being mainly in broadleaf woodland rather than conifers- i guess it could get a bit slippery with fallen leaves around. If done at a good speed with minimal rest stops the trail has good flow and fireroad is kept to a minimum.

The blue trail is easy enough to ride for beginners but has no real fun sections- the singletrack is quite short and doesnt make up enough of the route.
