Ae Overview

Ae, Scotland’s shortest village name is only 20 minutes from the M74 motorway in Dumfries and Galloway...

But ride its trails and you’ll think you’re in another world.

The Trails

With a superb variety of green, blue and red-graded trails, an extreme rated downhill section and skills area you could not want for more at Ae.

Ae Valley Route

A green-graded trail is aimed mainly at families. Taking you to a beautiful viewpoint overlooking the Water of Ae.

The Larch View Route

A blue-graded trail is suitable for those families looking to take in a little bit more of the forest.

Ae Line - Scottish Power Renewables Trail

The Shredder

Is perfect if downhill is more your thing. This orange-graded bike park is an entry level downhill track giving you a taste of everything.

Ae Downhill

This orange-graded park route provides a bigger challenge with its seriously gnarly rocky sections satisfying the most demanding of riders.
