The trail building at GT never stops. The climb from The Hub (at the bottom) to Buzzards nest (the top carpark, a couple of miles in) is now all off-road and great fun – yes, climbing can be fun!
From there, you should mix + match the red + blue sections. Black's still loooong and 'out there' – you won't meet anyone – and round Buzzard it's busy on weekend afternoons. But get up to Spooky either on red or poofing-out straight up Anderson Road (avoids 2 fairly meaty climbs and one fun descent) and you're on the rollercoaster. There's at least 3 top-bottom routes from the top of Spooky to the Hub, each with loads of variations.
Study the map (which has improved too!) and just go round and round.
But also do Inners, it's amazing – a proper Mountain Bike track. 5 miles climbing to start with mind. But then there's the down… Oh, yes.

I just had a look at the map I posted 🙄 and I'll recommend you a route:
From the top of spooky (north-most red), descend to the shelter/meteorite then turn _left_ and down Betty Blue to the road. Follow the road out to Deliverance black, and enjoy proper old Glentress. At the top of the Redemption climb, take the shortcut back onto the road and follow blue (yes, blue) with the Freeride park in the middle all the way to the Hub.
Yee, and indeed, ha!

Innerhaven is the place to go Jedi. Andy who runs it is a font of trail knowledge.
Was it really 2003 when you first came up? Bloody hell! I still remember the curry and the classic comment when we got the bill…. "I asked for the bill, not your telephone number!" £45 for popadoms…….eek!
PS I hear you are off to the Basque Country too……you are in for a real treat! I loved it out there. Magic riding, Doug and Amaia are great hosts too.Posted 8 years ago
