- 7stanes conditons?
Looking to ride Mabie, Ae, Dalbeattie and Kirroughtree on a long weekend next weekend. I see there are some closures. Anybody in the know as to if they will be open for next weekend?
Glentress/ Innerleithen. Are options but I see Innerleithen is closed ATM.
Any advice appreciatedPosted 4 years ago
Lot of trees down in Dumfries area. Keep an eye on the web as I am sure they will clear most this week. Boys at Ae cafe will tell you what the score is there if you give em a call or check the cafe facebook page.
Out about mabie and troston tomorrow – will be taking the saw after last nights experience 😉Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Innerleithen’s officially completely shut, the uplifts are off for the weekend etc.
Glentress, the report for today was:
FCS OFFICIAL GLENTRESS UPDATE: Due to storm damaged/dangerous trees the following routes/sections are closed: Upper Green Route; Upper Blue Route; Pennels Vennel, Spookywood Climb, Mast road, Spookywood Descent, Super G, Matrix, Lombard Street on Red Route; Black Route (post 103 – 52).
Routes/trails open: Lower Green Route; Lower Blue Route; Berm Baby Berm; Red Route (except sections detailed above); Skills Area; Freeride Park
Conditions: O.K, small branches on trails (on open sections).
They’ll have been out clearing it today no doubt, FC always do an amazing job of cleaning up but I saw photos of trail damage too from lifted roots so it won’t be back to normal overnight (nice rooty corner in super g looks like it’s lost all its roots 🙁 )Posted 4 years agoahsatSubscriber
Looking at the trail condition updates only Kirroughtree currently looks clear. I’d wait to later next week and make a decision. We were going to go to GT or Mabie tomorrow but have decided to knock it on the head. Its all not fair on the FC to get in the way while they are trying to sort it.Posted 4 years agoTreksterSubscriber
Round Dalbeattie today. A few trees down over the tracks but all easily got round. Worst affected section being the last one back to the car park, again easily enough to negotiate.

Been out about mabie and the surrounding area this morning. Trees still down on the elevator at mabie. Didn’t do much else of it as I was over troston and new abbey way too.
