Trail Description:

Young riders from the Ballachulish area were looking for an area to improve their skills developed the Donkey Hill dirt track. They were given the use of some waste ground, and accessed funding that allowed them to hire a digger to build the trail. World Champion Greg Minnaar and Sean McCarrol (then of the Global Team) visited during the 2002 World Cup to help plan the trail, which is a signle lane BMX track featuring easy jumps to help skills progress.

Incorporating tabletops. rollers, mini step ups, doubles, a hip jump and bermed corners, the track provides beginner / intermediate riders with an opportunity to build their confidence and skills.
