Arden Grange & Siberian Husky Club of GB Aviemore Sled Dog Rally, Glenmore Forest Park, 23rd & 24th January 2010

Aviemore, News, Sled dogs Add comments

The trail is a designated cross-country ski course and is clearly defined. The Start lies just over the wooden bridge from the car park and runs parallel to the ski road for a short distance before entering the forest. The first part of the trail is quite demanding, but then runs along the lochside to the Finish without great problem. Note: Without snow, the trail can be tough on dogs’ feet and care should be taken at all times, even when training.
