Owner description: Innerleithen, situated just a few miles south east of Glentress is the preserve of the more experienced rider. Deemed as providing awesome downhill and freeride trails, as well as a cracking red-graded XC route.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Lots to learn in the museum (it's free) about the annual border games and cleikum ceremony. DVD gave a good idea of the atmosphere. The gardens were pretty and the natural spring water tastes just lovely. There are lots of tables where you can take a picnic and enjoy the beautiful views. Lovely way to spend a couple of hours.

“Innerleithen Mountain Biking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

According to the mountain bikers I have spoken to, this downhill course is one of the best in the U.K. which regularly hosts championship events and tests the bikers to the limit. At the moment the facilities on site are not great, but having said that planning permission has already been given for a complex to be build on site, which will be started early next year to include a mechanical up lift to accommodate bikers, tourists and walkers along with café facilities and toilets. There are also excellent bed and breakfast accommodation available in Innerleithen, one of the better affordable ones being Backcroft Bed and Breakfast, 31 - 33 Chapel Street, Innerleithen online at - ( info@backcroft.co.uk ).
So to sum up a great place to test your mountain biking skills with a number of downhill tracks and at least one of the tracks will test your skills to the limit.

“Brilliant trails for the more experienced rider”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2013

With Glentress just down the road in Peebles many people miss out on this absolute gem of a trail centre.

So first the negative - it has absolutely no facilities bar the car park. But this is actually a positive as it keeps a lot of people away and leaves the trails a lot quieter than the would be otherwise

Now the postives, the trails are stunning.
The red route is basically an almighty climb followed by a great descent. The climb maybe tough but you are rewarded with a proper hilltop summit complete with a cairn for your efforts. The ride down is amazing and really varied. A fast flowing first section just gets faster until you are spat out grinning on the fireroad. The second section mixes tight woodland singletrack with riding over rocky slabs.

The highlight though is the final section Cadon Bank. This is an immense rollercoaster all the way back to the car park. Apart from the first three drops which can be ridden round everything else can be rolled if you want to take things slowly but let go of the brakes and you can almost fly! It's possibly the best section of singletrack descending in the whole 7 stanes network.

I really love this place, highly recommended for the more serious biker

“Great tracks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2013 via mobile

I am well onto my downhill biking and have to say the downhill tracks at innerleithen are awesome,they suit all levels and most styles of riding from freeride to technical courses only problem being is the treck up the mountain is about 60 mins push up but pretty sure there is an uplift service available. Overall, sights and spectacular courses this is the place to be.
