Fort William Highlands DH track
Glencoe hill Resort features trails to suit all capabilities of driver, from area floor West Highland Method trail towards Chairlift accessed Downhill track.
This technical and steep DH track is for those who have skill and knowledge on DH songs, it is extremely rugged with hairpins, berms and falls.
The latest red route at Glencoe opened in-may 2012 to hugely good feedback from local riders. At significantly more than 2km’s long the track moves from the the surface of the access chair through a series of lumps, leaps and berms to the beds base place. The track is suitable both for downhill and XC bikes.
“There were 3 of us – two forty some thing DH beginners and a 10 year
old we can’t match. The 10 year-old is a reliable DH driver and liked the track joyfully operating a DH bicycle and a lighter all hill bicycle on track, consuming a lot of the jumps on he way down. He thinks its a perfect track for him to produce their skills and speed before stepping up to the Glencoe and Fort William black works. My skills tend to be that I’m a competent purple XC rider and was initially fighting the loose track, gnarly stones and steepness. By the end of your time I'd developed far more confidence tackling and achieving most of the
gnarly bits. Treasured it!” Roe McKenzie
