Your Route


Start

Ordinance Survey Map Reference SH977546.

1

Head straight for the dam from the Visitor Centre, point those wheels left and enjoy the view of the lake as you cross – left at the end of the dam, following the lakeside road.

2

Approx ¼ mile cross the cattle grid and head round to the right – watch out for the way-markers! Up through the gears here to get you up the rise.

3

Approx 1 mile again slow those pedals down and catch the way-marker on the right, sending you right down the forest track – Great section of downhill, but watch out as it does get slippy in the winter, and hard in the summer.

4

Through the gate at the caravan park, up the road and it’s a right again – Please be careful on the road side.

5

Slog up the hill, right through the gate, left at the edge of the dam, and back to where it all began.
