This trail is currently closed due to harvesting (Updated 12th June 2013).
Take a walk along the eastern edge of Loch Ard Forest. Much of this part of the forest is young second rotation conifer. The young trees, along with large areas of open ground and burnside native woodland, allow plenty of views of the surrounding countryside. You can see from Ben Lomond in the west across Loch Ard Forest to the Menteith Hills and the Carse of Stirling.
The trail is part forest road, part tarmac road, with some loose material on sections of the forest road.
How to get there:
Turn off the A81 about two miles south of Aberfoyle and follow the minor public road through Gartmore towards Drymen.
The car park is signposted about three miles south of Gartmore.
