The Achray Forest offers an abundance of opportunities for cycling and walking with the National Cycle Route 7 passing through on its way to Callander. The 3 Lochs Forest Drive is a scenic 7 mile route which can also be cycled or walked in either direction but watch out for vehicles on the bends and downhills. Along the drive there are some walks at Pine Ridge near the recreation and toilet area which add some diversions.

Its possible to meet up with The Invertrossachs Road along the NCR 7 route and make your way to Callander, mainly off road except for the last 3 miles which is on single track road. Near the exit to the drive there are 3 circular waymarked routes for walkers and cyclists but watch out for vehicles coming towards you. There is a nice picnic site on the shore of Loch Achray facing Tigh Mhor on the other side.

Follow the Forest Drive for a short way before leaving the road on a well constructed path. After crossing the Allt a Cham ruidhe burn the path climbs steeply for a short distance before it levels out and offers good views of the surrounding hills including Ben A'an and Ben Venue. There are also fine views across Loch Achray to Tigh Mor and the Trossachs Kirk. As you descend towards Loch Achray the path rejoins the Forest Drive and follows it back to the car park.

The trail takes you into Achray Forest through Pine and Birch woodland and Conifer forest.
