Parkhill Wood















Lads enjoying the trails in Parkhill Wood

Anne and I went up to Parkhill Wood for a walk today, it was a good choice, lots going on at Castle Semple and on the trails in Parkhill, little boats on the loch with groups of youngsters being shown the ropes of sailing and canoeing. Other groups were out around the short trails in the wood all having plenty of outdoor fun.

A SB video here.

PM got out on the MTB for a couple of hours over to my favourite local downhill at Kaim Hill, wonderful views, great fun, view the route here.

I've been putting some GPX files on my web site, not sure how much use they are but it certainly passes the time of day when the wet stuff is falling and its got me thinking about other trails across the water like the epic I did on Sunday. Using peoplesmap.com I've figured out a similar route from Claonaig through to Dunoon so that may well be my next epic MTB outing. It means cycling through Arran, over the Skipness-Tarbert off road and lots of forest trails to Glen Branter, should be...err...fun?

PS Some photos from this weeks galivanting here.

Hi Whee
Just love to see the trails and exployts you report on.
The last epic or the one you are planning look tempting to come over and Do. I organised the trails on our last French trip, but it would be nice to let someone else take the lead. Would be great if I could join you for a sunny days trail.

What do like to do? I don't mind pushing and carrying a little if the trail merits it. I'm not bothered about lots of singletrack although its a bonus if its there, I'm happy as long as I get something scenic. Anything on my web site you fancy?
