There is a big car park at the trail head, near the reservoir as I recall. The best section of trail is undoubtedly the last section called Runway. Fast and swoopy and then a dozen or so tabletops and doubles all in a row and all easy enough to give you a big grin without inducing rabbit's nose. The trail's pretty short so just do it all and then session the bits you liked most – unless there's been more added since this time last yearPosted 7 years agosillyoldmanSubscriber
Think you're getting Carron Valley and Mugdock muxed ip???
Mugdock has many carparks and many many more trails. Best bet is to hook up with GMBC on a Tues or Wed night to get to see some trails. If you're heading out tomorrow have fun – they're riding really well at the moment.Posted 7 years agocoffeekingMember
Not sure I'm going to be free or I'd offer. Depends what bits of mugdock you want to do. you can either park up near the visitor centre (the main carpark closes fairly early but the east car park (I think) stays open all night – its just a gravel area. Or you can park in milngavie and ride up through all the trails past the golf course. Actually IN mugdock is a bit dull mostly, but just northwest of it is much more fun and is accessed from it.Posted 7 years agoSannySubscriber
A bit dull? Are you having a laugh? Have you actually ridden there, coffeeking? There's heaps of lovely singletrack to be had when you head off the main trails e.g stuff along the riverbank, the rocky rooty, Drumclog Moor, Voodoo Hill etc
Sheesh – trail centre riders, I don't know! 😆Posted 7 years ago
River run, Castle descent, First descent (rocky rooty), Moor.Posted 7 years ago
Lots in Mugdock and lots beyond. The WHW to Dumgoyne and the Whangie are great as well for the longer distance.
Also the old rail line along to Lennoxtown and up in the forest for some of the old (partially forgotten) trails – local knowledge necessary.
Hours of fun.craa22ukMember
last time up there i logged my route with the old iphone
took in a fair bit either side of the drumclog carpark – have been back since and realise i didn't do down toward the golf course where there's some good stuff and also the trail down by the river toward the boundary road is v good at moment in the dry (lovely bluebells too)
anyhoo hope that's some usePosted 7 years agou02sgbSubscriber
Funny, i don't know you lot and yet the description "rocky rooty" tells me exactly the trail you mean (descent the comes out on the main path by the river with crescent stones with writing on them). I've always called it the "Rooty route of death" – less so now I have suspension :).
