Great cafe and bike shop with friendly staff. Nice natural style s
Trails away from the normal trail centre type track. Awesome variety for all levels from the family friendly free up to the just ride "lagged black" a true natural test of skill and bravery. Awesome trails, awesome food and breath taking views. A must ride. Not to mention they're at experience of riding (or seeing someone ride) airs rock.

No uplift but isn't much of a climb so multiple laps are more than possible.

Fantastic trail centre with great red route and challenging black descent. From the scary Airs Rock to the fun flowy lower red to the lethally technical and frequently slippery rocky black trail Laggan is great fun. A long drive from Edinburgh but well worth it.

One of the most technical black routes in the UK
Fun and fast
Good facilities
Fun skills area
Hidden secret trails
Bad Points
Upper red descent is largely good but some parts that should flow really don't and it can feel a bit pedally
Freeride trail has eroded so jumps don't really have any lip

Dirt road almost up to top, little technical uphill and then grinning all the way down.

One of the best spots in Scotland we've ever gone. Very progressive riding. Make sure you do upper red few times before you head down as it's a tad better than lower. Beautiful scenery and black sections are proper black.
Bad Points
It's miles away from me. Cafe is a bit overpriced compared to normally good value in Scotland (still not south prices tho)

2nd visit to Wolftrax and this one involved a 400+ mile drive to be there. Was well worth it!!

Great venue with something to please mountain bikers at all levels. Trails are testing but not impossible for novices (like me). Cafe was good with excellent coffee and some pretty nice cakes too. Just what was needed after a long hard ride.

Laggan is one of my favourite trail centres as it is a great mix of challenge and fun. I love the mix of terrain and it certainly is a trail that requires a wide set of skills to nail.

Whilst there are lots of tricky sections it is also a trail that seems to encourage you to try a bit harder and ride to the edge of your comfort zone. More often than not it pays off and you feel dead chuffed. If it doesn't work it is so easy to get off and try the section again.

I have taken a number of red route virgins to Laggan and they have all loved it so recommend that you try it!

Fantastic trails for intermediate and advanced riders. Unlike some trail centers the climbs are just as rewarding as the descents with some fun single track to ride up and good views from the fire roads. The trails themselves are awesome, very well built without feeling heavily engineered, even on the Orange Bike Park trail, which is something I really enjoy. There's also options on both reds to avoid most of the large features or roll them, so if you took the easiest line every time, they're not far off being really good blues. Plenty of cool features on all the trails that don't slow you down too much, but still provide a challenge. Cafe and bike shop are great, and I really appreciate the showers that are now available. Excellent customer service and quality from the cafe, making it well worth the few extra pennies. Only down side is that there isn't a good skills loop, and there aren't really any trails for beginners besides one green (which I'm told is good, but I've never ridden myself). But apart form that, great center.

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

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!

Had a weekend here and loved it, if you do a gondola day at Fort Bill and then want a trail day tehn dont do the witches trail come here!

Well built and good variety, views of epicness - did I mentioned the views?

I love the highlands, and the natural stuff but I'd be happy with a day here anytime, any weather.

Do go exploring the natural stuff on the opposite hill if you like it steep :)
