A-Z of Secret Dundee: Templeton Woods Tangle

In a city that’s already top for two wheelers, there’s another great reason to saddle up.

The Templeton Woods Tangle is a newly-constructed mountain bike skills trail on the western outskirts of the city. The trail has been designed and constructed by Architrail – the same company who designed the Olympic and Commonwealth games cycling facilities.

Challenges along the trail include steps and drops

It winds its way 1km through wild, beautiful scenery and there is a blue trail with easier options and a red trail for experienced riders. Challenges along the trail include steps and drops, jumps, tight corners, rock and root obstacles and challenging climbs.

If that’s not worn you out, then continue carefully over the Coupar Angus road into large and leafy Camperdown Park and continue on the city’s green circular bike track for more muddy meanderings!
