This leads to short Downhill section then 90 degree turn to right and rolling singletrack to fireroad. Cross fireroad and there is another singletrack descent off to right. At bottom of this there are a couple of bombholes leading to a track taking you down to the original left to right fireroad you cycled up at the beginning. Your choice then, lap 2 or pub!

tips: don't use the brakes on the steppy downhill as it equates to more difficulty.

Recommended Route:
after the drop from auchterhouse hill don't go right but left and over the hill heading west stay on high ground not in the ruts and follow your nose to the monument, options here! 1/ drop the left side of the hill and cross the road and take on newtyle brae leading to tully baccart tough mossy and damp single track, follow the crags south side mind not to fall, 200ft drop to your left, then fire down to newtyle or 2/ shorter loop drop r/side of kinpurney then head to charlestown via landy track in wood, climb back up to kinoul via dryburn, long burner this, then drop down single track, do this at pace as it really flows, this takes you back to the race loop and carpark.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
templeton/camperdown park area; mostly flat some tricky singletrack and fast fireroads, usually muddy good for youngsters.
