Woodhead Loop Stats
Grade: Blue - Moderate
Estimated Time To Ride The Route: 1 - 2 hrs
Ready for the next step up? The Woodhead Loop is slightly harder than the Big Views Loop and explores the far side of the forest using quiet forest roads and some easy singletrack.
Following the early part of the green route you climb around the hill behind Marthown of Mabie. A couple of sections of singletrack take you across one road to join the next for an easy spin past Hill Head and the Long Wood before descending to just above Lochanhead.
Fine views behind
Bear left at the road junction to the start of the gradually steepening climb leading over the shoulder to the Dalshinnie Glen. As you climb above the Lochaber Loch, don’t miss the fine views behind you. Cross the watershed and head for the long, easy descent back to the car park.
