Summary:
Excellent woods for mountain biking. The trail pixies have been out making good the existing trails and making new trails and jumps. A hidden gem though it is becoming more popular all the time.

But beware, you don't have the woods to yourself. There are a lot of dog walkers and horsey types around. I don't mind the former but the latter can be a right pain in the a**** especially when they are inexperienced..... Once, I actually had a horse and rider coming up a mtb track when we were heading down a high speed and then received an earful from the rider saying that we should not be there, and we were a danger to other users. I tried to explain 'very f****** nicely' but all I got was ignored for my troubles.

You could do a lot worse that head up to Kelty

Recommended Route:
Start at the Main carpark and head up Cowden Hill. Its all downhill from there. Plenty of single track branching off the main tracks/roads but keep your eyes opening or you'll miss them.

Summary:
There is a good mixture of fire road , steep but short descents, really quite technical in bits , also some swoopy, very fast & dangerous bits which if you fall off, you are going to hit a tree(s). Good for all levels as there are trails all over the place. Very few are "armoured" motorways that you will find in trail centres and can get very very muddy and very slippy but thats all good.

Recommended Route:
Start at the very top carpark at the main entrance and follow the footpath down past the left hander corner and then take a sharp left at the next right hand corner, you will see the entrance to the top trails on your right, follwo your nose and you will eventaully come to another footpath, take a right here and about 200 mtrs you will come to a left hand entrance into another small section just before a crossroads in the path, follow this and you will come out at the bridge, go up the small hill and the next entrance is on your right.
After you have ridden this, start climbing up to the radio mast cross roads, take a right here and about 800 mtrs on your right is another entrance, follow this trail down and this takes you out to a big logged field, take a right after the drain ditch, then a left at the next cross roads and the next trail is 300mtr on your right, follwo this and you are at the lowest point in Blair Adam, follow signs back to bottom car park and climb the hill back to where you started.

Summary:
We headed up to Blairadam this Sunday. It was very wet and muddy. The tracks are good hard ground whilst the wooded sections are in good condition generally. There are a few sections which are very waterlogged and muddy. The main down hill trail east from the mast has been disrupted as recent logging had forced the route to close forcing us though an old down hill route to the south which ended up very wet and muddy. Plus lots of dead leaves are covering the wood floor in more open sections or non evergreen sections.

We were luvky enough to bump into a guy called Simon from Dunfermline who knows the routes and gave up a guided tour.

A few rubbish bins would be good as local dog walks who pick up after their pets just leave bags on the entrance making look unsightly.

Summary:
Been a wee while since I was last there so no details...

Recommended Route:
The ride up to the Radio Mast and then dropping down towards Kinroos direction makes a superb fireroad climb with a singletrack descent.
