GLENTRESS’ skills area has been upgraded to help beginners and intermediate mountain bikers.

Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS) has taken out the older and harder sections in the skills area’s main central section and replaced them with low log beams, rollers and rock hops, and added harder sections within the green loop area.

FCS’s Glentress trailbuilder Richard Hamilton, said: “The main central section is much better now for coaching and viewing a rider’s technique.

“Bikers also wanted some technically difficult sections so we’ve built these too.

“We’ve also added push-up paths next to the difficult features so that riders can easily try these again and again.

“A small viewing platform will also help with coaching on this part of the skills area.”
