Laggan Wolftrax Centre and Cafe
November 2021 update.
The Wolftrax Cafe has now closed for the season and is expected to re-open sometime in February 2022. The Wee Bike Hub has now relocated to Kingussie.
Forestry Land Scotland, who own and maintain both the the Mountain Bike Trails and the Car Park, advise that the trails and car park will remain open during the present alterations at the centre and also advise that cyclists should beware on access to the trails because of on-going logging operations in the Blackwood Forest until end of 2021.
Further felling is expected around the Squirrel trail from April 2022 - to be confirmed - and if this goes ahead, the trail will be closed.
2021 - The Wolftrax Cafe is now closed until mid-February. The centre is available to hire for meetings over the winter period. Contact email@example.com for details.
In 2004, Forest Enterprise established the Laggan Wolftrax Mountain Bike trails within one part of Strathmashie Forest (Achduchil) and this has become a significant visitor destination for, what was then, a new sport. Further trail investment in later years and the establishment of a permanent centre in 2015 by the Trust via a grant provided by the Cairngorms National Park Authority has generated diversity in local economic development and local employment.
The centre’s café, shower and toilet facilities are proving very popular with biking enthusiasts and visitors to the forest trails and local archaelogical sites - Dun da Lamh.
The car park (owned by Forest and Land Scotland) charges a fee to enable the mountain bike trails and path network throughout the forest to be maintained regularly. (The Laggan Forest Trust has no responsibility for the car park or fees.)
