Glentress - Current at 28th November 2014
Trails: All open except, from Mon 17th Nov to the end of Thu 18th Dec (7 days/week) the Falla Brae & the Buzzards Nest carparks are closed and the road and trail sections between Falla Brae car park and Buzzards Nest car park are closed to the public. The outward Blue/Red/Black Routes are closed at post 4 with a diversion via forest roads (steep in places) rejoining the Routes at post 16. The Black Route diversion continues from post 16 (via the Blue Return Route & Blue Velvet) rejoining the Route at post 103 (just before Soor Plooms). The Blue Route return is closed at post 11 (exit of Berm Baby Berm) with a diversion via mainly forest roads back to trailhead. The Red/Black Route return is closed at post 53 (exit of Magic Mushroom) with a diversion via forest roads back to trailhead. Lower Green Route will be closed from Mon 1st Dec to end of Thu 18th Dec (7 days/week).
These closures and diversions are due to tree felling operations, part of a large programme of tree thinning improvements at Glentress ongoing until May 2015.
Conditions: Good. The Freeride Park, Skills Area and Upper Green Route remain open but the only way to access these from the Peel trailhead is to follow the signposted diversions which use BLUE graded trails with a considerable amount of climbing/descending.
Diversions: See above.
