I've been to Mugdock a couple of times and never really found much to write home about, leaving diappointed that the good trails were there but I just couldn't find them.
Took the new bike out for it's first outing on Saturday and I found LOADS! I must have spent 2 hours going back and forth through the forest (I can't believe someone stole your bridge btw) and suddenly I started finding stuff all over the place! Highlights were a long and silly fast downhill with a 200ft drop on your left hand side the whole way down
So glad I finally know where stuff is, had no idea the trails were "developed".
Didn't see a soul for 4 hours until I got lost on the way back to the car and spotted four guys just heading into the forest who gave me a wave from afar (not a euphemism).
Would definitely be interested in heading over when locals are going, the quality of stuff is much higher than I was expecting!
