7stanes at Glentress

For over 7 years the 7stanes at Glentress has lead the way in purpose built mountain biking trails. There really is no other venue like Glentress in Britain, and that’s the reason it is consistently voted the best dedicated centre in the UK.
Glentress has it all, for all abilities, and the centre never rests. There is always some form of 7stanes trailbuilding going on at Glentress. Whether it is more natural singletrack from volunteer groups, or lengthening the blue graded runs through 7stanes funding. Glentress has a massive scene connected with it and feeds off this scene to grow bigger and better. Soon the forest itself will have to grow to cope with the sheer quantity of trails! Years of 7stanes trailbuilding experience and innovation have gone into Glentress along with all the facilities you would want pre and post-ride.

Beginners and novices can hone their technique at the purpose-built skills loop. From here, there are 7stanes Green graded routes and a 7stanes Blue run which rivals the advanced routes for sheer fun. The 7stanes Red run is the most popular in Glentress and its Spookywood descent is one of the most famous in UK mountain biking. The black-graded ‘V’ trail is 30kms of award-winning singletrack which provides great views over the Tweed Valley and seemingly endless descents on ribbons of singletrack. There is also plenty to entertain the highly skilled in the ‘freeride’ jump area.

Glentress can easily soak up two or three days of your time to experience the full range of trails. The site has a unique feel to it and really is a Biker’s Paradise. New developments at the base of the forest are looking to expand on facilities for all visitors, but already the site has its most important asset – atmosphere. That’s why over 350,000 visitors and growing, enjoy it annually.
