Rocks and roots

Newcastleton

The trail strats with a climb out of the village and eventually on pleasant off road switchbacks. After a couple more sections you read the "top" where the skills area is. The red "Hidden Valley" section is a fairly standard trail centre red. For a combination of reasons we didn't ride the remaining red singletrack sections, but the blue section back into Newcastleton was lovely and flowy!

Note the trail head has moved from where it is marked on older trail maps and even the OS map above. It's now in the centre of the village, and worth it for the final blue section!

We stayed at a wonderful B&B nearby in Sorbietrees where they offered us a drying room and lit a wood fire in the lounge!
