Summary:
The first review here sounds like it's for the skills loop and freeride area and then down fala brae to the hub cafe - all at Glentress which is right next to Peebles.

Recommended Route:
The whole red route, or the black, or a mix of the two. there's also loads of other unmarked trails if you go looking for them. Long summer days and nights at glentress are just so good.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
along the road to innerleithen for DH and XC and also some more natural stuff across the hills and moors.
