2. 7STANES AE FOREST, DUMFRIES & GALLOWAY
Ae Forest is better known for its downhill trails and a great, though difficult (red) graded trail. But the easy (green) trail starting at the café and bike shop is a real gem and a great option for those with young children or new to mountain biking.
The green trail at this 7stanes centre is a flat singletrack, with some undulating sections and is reasonably wide, following the riverside up to a beautiful crossing before descending down the opposite bank along boardwalk and other features. Look out for an old plane, which the kids can explore, about halfway along the trail.
