Mabie Forest, the original mountain biking venue in the south west of Scotland.
Mabie lies just a few miles south of Dumfries and caters for beginners right through to the most expert of riders.
Mabie forest is strikingly beautiful and has something for everyone - with a skills area, cafe, bike hire and shop on site it has everything you could need for a great day's riding.
A skills area with different-graded trails gives a taste of Mabie riding for those new to the area or looing to move up a trail grade. It also includes a fantastic 300m freeride line with plenty of sections for you to practise your jumping technique.

The green-graded Big Views and the blue-graded Woodhead loop
A great introduction to mountain biking and Mabie's striking surroundings.
A classic mountain bike route - great riding through mixed woodland and wonderful scenery.
An orange bike park-graded trail. Mostly on narrow elevated wooden "North Shore" sections and spiced with outcrops of granite, it is firmly for the experts. The main hill has been permanently closed. Vaders Lair (qualifier) & the racetrack are due to be upgraded 2014/15.
