Aberdeenshire Trail Association
11 September @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm BST
Aberdeenshire Trail Association, which worked with local landowners and agencies to enhance the iconic Heartbreak Ridge trail, will be attending the Ballater & Crathie Mountain Bike Festival with a stall, on Saturday 11th September, selling merchandise and doing some fundraising to support future trail work in Ballater and throughout the region.
The Trail Association have been involved in an extensive program of maintenance and improvement works to the iconic Heartbreak Ridge Trail situated just outside the village. This included the creation of a totally new trail ending in 2019 and securing funding to deliver a huge programme of sustainability enhancement and trail improvement works in 2021 across both the climb and main descent in partnership with CRC Trails. These improvements are made possible thanks to hundreds of hours of volunteer and partnership funding from DMBinS, NEAT, CycleHighlands and the trail associations own fundraising.
