Mabie Overview

Mabie Forest, the original mountain biking venue in the south west of Scotland.

Mabie lies just a few miles south of Dumfries and caters for beginners right through to the most expert of riders.

The Trails

Mabie forest is strikingly beautiful and has something for everyone!


A skills area with different-graded trails gives a taste of Mabie riding for those new to the area or looing to move up a trail grade. It also includes a fantastic 300m freeride line with plenty of sections for you to practise your jumping technique.

The green-graded Big Views and the blue-graded Woodhead loop

A great introduction to mountain biking and Mabie's striking surroundings.

The red-graded Phoenix Trail

A classic mountain bike route - great riding through mixed woodland and wonderful scenery.
