Ironhash Trail Stats
Grade: Green - Easy
Estimated Time To Ride The Route: 1.5 - 2 hrs
The Ironhash trail provides an easy ride deep into the heart of the forest, mainly on forest roads and is ideal for getting a flavour of what mountain biking can offer.
Wide, easy singletrack
Like the all the other routes at Dalbeattie, the route starts out through the skills area on wide, easy singletrack before joining the forest road to ride out through Richorn Plantation.
A short uphill stretch leads to a traverse around Cloak Hill before the trail climbs again to circle the open marshland of the 'Dry Lock'. If you're lucky you'll get a good view of riders descending Dalbeattie’s famous 'Slab'. This marks the far point of the ride and as you enjoy the views it’s mostly downhill, retracing the route back to the trail head.
