Mountain Biking in Helensburgh and Lomond
There are three mapped mountain biking areas locally – Highlandman’s Woods, Ben Bowie, and Arrochar.
The maps on this page are from Trailforks. This is a great resource for up to date information about the condition of trails with rider reports and reviews. Also see our main Cycling page for how to get here and road and bikepacking routes in the area.
Highlandman’s Woods – Helensburgh
Helensburgh Trail System is a non for profit organisation with the aim of building and maintaining the mountain bike trails in Highlandman’s Woods. See their page on this site for a detailed description of the trails.
There are lots of routes around Arrochar, including to the Loch Sloy Dam and along the Loch Lomond and Cowal Way. This area contains the Munros of Beinn Ime and Beinn Narnain, and also The Cobbler, and some very challenging black routes are listed on Trailforks.
