Leanachan Forest, on the lower slopes of Aonach Mor, is fast becoming a mecca for riders of all abilities. Offering some of Britain’s best terrain, ranging from gentle family trails through to international standard race routes. There’s over 25 miles of forest tracks to explore on foot or bike, all with the stunning backdrop of Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis .
The 25 miles of alternative way-marked routes are there to be explored at any time of the year; all routes are graded from easy to expert. These form a mixture of rolling forest tracks, disused narrow gauge railway lines and purpose built technical single tracks.
The Nevis Range Gondola Base Station offers an ideal starting point for all of the above routes; there is a large car park (£3 charge applies May – October), toilets and a the Pinemarten Cafe Bar.
This area arguably offers some of Britain’s best cycling, whatever the weather … and is rated as one of Britain’s top 10 bike venues by MBR magazine.
