Are you looking to step up from green-graded routes to the next level? Or maybe you’re a more experienced rider looking for a really fun trail to ride but want something less difficult than a red route? The blue route at Glentress, is made up of 2 loops, which join in the middle. This gives you the option of either riding a lower 8km loop, or if you are wanting a longer ride then you can add in the upper loop too.
The route has had extra sections of singletrack added over time, carefully crafted with Blue Route riders firmly in mind. The result makes climbing from the trailhead to the Buzzards Nest car park a much easier, more enjoyable experience, and the descent back down a whole lot of fun! The blue route is also home to some of the newest sections of trail built at Glentress including one of the staff favourites, Berm Baby Berm!
