Moray Monster trails are 30km of fun-packed single track mountain bike routes, run by the Forestry Commission and located in Fochabers.
Whether you’re totally new to off-road mountain biking, or an expert rider looking for big thrills, you’ll find something to get you grinning from easy green-graded tracks to severe black-grade trails.
Ordiequish is a pine and heather wood with a maze of old paths and tracks dating back to the 19th Century. It is also home to the steep sided Ordiequish burn, the dramatic red stony ‘Earth Pillars’ laid down by a glacier, and Jean Carr’s stone – the apparent final resting place of the famous child snatcher!
Ordiequish is home to four of Moray Monster Bike Trails: The Soup Dragon (blue), Gordzilla (blue), The Haggis (blue) and the Gully Monster (black).
Winding Walks were originally laid out by the Duke and Duchess of Gordon in the 19th Century. It was part of their garden and they planted several specimens of trees. At the heart of the woods is a dramatic gully and at the top of Whiteash Hill is a monument to the Duchess of Richmond – and a fantastic viewpoint!
As you might guess by the name, Winding Walks is a group of four walking trails, but the woods are also home to The Fochabers Ring (red), and the Fochabers Freeride (black) – two of Moray’s Monster Bike Trails.
