You're probably the kind of rider that thinks Kirroughtree is shit too (the best 7Stane IMHO).
Really? I really like Kirroughtree but I definitely prefer Glentress to Innerleithen.
Northwind's advice is pretty good, BTW. If berms 'n' tabletops aren't particularly your thing then flyinmonkeycorps' suggestion to take the red to the top of Spooky Wood then continue up to the Boundary Trail is good too.
Or if you want to do almost all of the red but take in one of the black's long descents, turn left after The Super G, tootle along the fire road for a while and you'll get to the start of Deliverance. One big descent followed by Deliverance, a fairly big climb. You'll miss out on only one section of red (Hit Squad Hill) to do this, though it is a nice bit.
Coming down the red, if you choose to winch yourself up the climb after Hit Squad Hill, then the following two sections are shadowed by sections of the black. Both trails for the first section (red: Matrix, black: Double X) are pretty good but for the second section the black (The Bitch) is much better than the red (Lombard Street).
One of the nice things about Glentress is how the trails often intersect. It's worth the 2 quid to get a map and have a look at how you can mix and match the various trails together.
