7-Stanes: Mabie /
United Kingdom


Mabie Bike Park is situated in Mabie Forest, the original mountain biking venue in the south west of Scotland. It lies just a few miles south of Dumfries and caters for beginners right through to the most expert of riders.  Mabie forest is strikingly beautiful and has something for everyone - with a skills area, cafe, bike hire and shop on site, it has everything you could need for a great day's riding.

The skills area with different-graded trails gives a taste of Mabie riding for those new to the area or looking to move up a trail grade. It also includes a fantastic 300m freeride line with plenty of sections for you to practise your jumping technique.

Trails include:

  • The green-graded Big Views and the blue-graded Woodhed loops give a great introduction to mountain biking and Mabie's striking surroundings.
  • The forest road Purple Trail - Lochbank Loops is a mixture of forest road and some b-class public road. Worth the climb for the spectacular views.
  • The red-graded Phoenix Trail is a classic mountain bike route - great riding through mixed woodland and wonderful scenery.
  • Turn to the Dark Side - an orange bike park-graded trail. Mostly on narrow elevated wooden "North Shore" sections and spiced with outcrops of granite, it is firmly for the experts.
