Happy to say that the Red and Black DH tracks with a new sections on the Red should be open daily from Saturday 11th May!
We're even more excited to announce that we'll have brand new Commencal Clash Origin hire bikes available!
Black Route This technical and steep DH track is only for those who have skill and experience on DH tracks, it is very rocky with hairpins, berms and drops.
Red Route The red route had a significant rebuild to make it even better than before! Expect back to back berms, bumps, jumps and a little tech to keep you on your toes. It consists of 4 sections which cross over the hill access road. All features are rollable or have ride-arounds.
"There were 3 of us - two forty something DH beginners and a 10 year old we can't keep up with. The 10 year old is a competent DH rider and loved the track happily riding a DH bike and a lighter all mountain bike on the track, taking in a lot of the jumps on he way down. He thinks it is a perfect track for him to develop his skills and speed before stepping up to the Glencoe and Fort William black runs. My skills are that I'm a competent red XC rider and was initially struggling with the loose track, gnarly rocks and steepness. By the end of our day I had developed a lot more confidence tackling and achieving most of the gnarly bits. Loved it!" Roe McKenzie
With a day pass you are able to ride the trails as many times as you like using our chairlift.
Plateau Trails Our chairlift accesses our blue, red and black XC trails on the plateau which offer great cross country/enduro riding and amazing views from above the valley. The trails are a mix of Land Rover track climbs and natural mountain biking on marked trails. Some mountain bike experience is required. Our Plateau and DH trails are accessible by the chairlift so once you have your lift pass head up to the chair and our lift operators will help you get your bike on.
West Highland Way Stretching from Glasgow to Fort William the West Highland way is 94 miles long, you don’t have to do the whole route though! From Glencoe Mountain Resort, Bridge of Orchy is only 11 miles and Kinlochleven is just 9 miles away, the route south offers an easier trail and the route north is more technical with the infamous ‘devils staircase’ to consider. To access the West Highland Way simply ride down the access road towards the cottage and you will see a trail to the right heading south, for rides towards the north carry on along the access road, cross the A82 and join the trail heading left along the valley.
Rannoch Public Path Accessed from the West Highland Way this then splits off to the right at the Kingshouse for a gentle climb on Land Rover track up to a viewpoint near the mast.'
Glencoe Mountain Resort is the perfect place to start a road cycling route from, with a circuit of 80 miles round past Ballachullish, Glen Etive and Tyndrum and other routes to choose from, once you have conquered the roads you can relax and refuel in our café.
Glencoe Mountain Resort is pleased to offer Commencal Clash Origin full suspension mountain bikes for hire.
'You can get so much more out of the CLASH, from a pedal with the kids through to full-on freeride... Faithful to its rider, it adapts to the situation, whatever the terrain. A simple and effective bike, capable of anything!’
