After you enter Glenmore Forest Park, Loch Morlich is on your right-hand side. Once at the east end of Loch Morlich, you pass a shop on the right before reaching the Glenmore Caravan and Camping site. Directly opposite the entrance to the campsite is the access road into the Visitor Centre - lookout for the big green sign! For Sat Nav use PH22 1QU.

Glenmore Forest mountain bike trails are made up of a selection of natural trails. Glenmore Forest has Loch Morlich at its heart and is located in the Cairngorms National Park near Aviemore, in the Highlands of Scotland.

There is a visitors centre, parking, cafe and toilets but the trails are not waymarked so come prepared. 

There is also a skills training park at Glenmore Lodge and you are pretty close to the trail bases of Laggan Wolftrax and Glenlivet which are also in the Cairngorms.
