The Witch’s Trails are near the Nevis Range ski centre near Fort William. Here you can choose from magical journeys through fragrant forest or dazzling downhill rides - the Witch’s Trails have something for everyone. There’s a skills loop to warm up, and if you feel the need for a higher, mightier magic you can take the Nevis Range gondola up the mountain for more.
The 4.4 mile Blue Trail is a great place to start and is ideal for younger riders. The trail follows the River Lundy, with plenty of gently flowing single track.
The first 6.3 mile Red Trail is a heady brew of single track and forest road, based on the popular ‘10 Under the Ben’ event. Watch out for Nessie, a snaking monster of a descent!
The other Red Trail is a 5.3 mile route that was built for the 2007 World Championships. This loop is a real work out, with nearly 600 feet of climb and descent - you’ll need to handle technical features and hard climbs and be ready for some thrilling descents.
