Mountain Biking Skatas Trail System

*****   Add a review
#2 of 47 mountain bike trails in Sweden
#449 in the world

The Skatas Trail System connects to many other trail areas around Gothenburg, but this portion of the trail network butts up directly against the western side of the city.

This area is a maze of challenging, technical singletrack combined with gravel paths and roads as connectors. There are deep mud pits, skinny bridges, slickrock balds, steep climbs, steep descents, and more roots and rocks than you can fathom!

Leo Ranta of Hillside Cycling knows every twist and turn of this trail system, and I highly recommend you hire him as a guide. This is a vast spider web of trails, with turns and intersections all over the place, and ALMOST NONE of these trails are marked. Do yourself a favor and hire a professional to show you around!

    Reviewing Black and White:

    The quality of this trail really depends upon the section you're on. Some are excellent, some aren't so great.

    This is ground zero for Gothenburg mountain biking, and the technical, challenging trails that spider out in every directions can keep you entertained for days! I recommend hiring a guide--Hillside Cycling--to get the most out of your experience, as trail signs in this area are non-existant.

    Reviewing Blueberry Trail:

    The Blueberry Trail is one of the best in Skatas, with some great-riding singletrack and big, challenging rock features, including steep rolls, rock gardens, and small cliffs. This is a must-ride for the area!
