Wolftrax - Laggan

Average Rating:    (5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 2

Blue route - fun park for families and beginners but good fun for all abilities. Fast flowing singletrack with switchbacks and high berms, a few table tops and jumps. Red route - for intermediate riders. Tighter singletrack with some more technical rock obstacles and jumps. Includes airs rock a black obstacle that can be bypassed if wanted. Black route - for experienced riders or those who want to stretch their abilities! Tight singletrack with rock causeways, drop offs and stairways. Uses the natural rock mostly and has a fantastic view down to loch laggan from the top. Very technical but very satisfying

Summary:
laggans three trails are all diferent the red is a flowing trail with small obsitcals, it is fantastic for bringing early to intermediate mtb riders on, but is good fun for all.
the black is a tecnical trail round a hill the start is a gental slog to the top, where the fun starts with some nice rock formations to ride and some other fetures. not going to spoil it for you.
the blue is wrongly named as it is a fun park entry leve to jumps and burms there are plenty feture on the 1.3 km of park and there is a lift to the top via mini bus.

Summary:
A very good mix of three different trails. The blue route is quite fast and flowing which riders of all abilities can get something out of, the red route wasn't quite finished at time of writing but what was rideable was well thought out and interesting with airs rock a natural feature that has to be tried out!
The black route is excellent. Very technical it uses natural rock features as well as purpose built rock causeways and stairways. Again it has been well thought out and builds up to the more technical stuff further down. You will probably get the most out of it riding a long travel or big hit full susser but everyone can gain something from it and it is guaranteed that you will have attempted something you didn't think possible by the time you reach the bottom. My only critisism, though I'm being very picky, is that it isn't very long but when you see how much effort has gone into the construction this is understandable, it looks very weatherproof and should be fine all year round.

Recommended Route:
Try all three, which can be done in an afternoon, but definitely have a go at the black route
