The 16 kilometer trail system has been designed by one of the world leaders in the sport.
The trail is a one-way system constructed to provide riders with an exhilarating ride through many types of terrain bursting with heather moor land on the top through thicket spruce on the lower section.
There are spectacular views to the east over Calary Common, you can also enjoy sea views the Sugarloaf mountain and at the very top of the trail Lough Tay and the beautiful hinterland.
The trail is quite exposed on the upper slopes and can be very windy in poor weather, please dress accordingly.
Please ensure that you are equipped fully to undertake this adventure sport and respect other trail users at all times
Things to do
Start Point: the Nountain Bike Trail is a loop trail: (16.kms, 2.5hrs, Difficult)
If you like funky fun single track trails, you are the right place. Forest road climbs lead you into tight twisty single track with loads of ups and downs, tight turns and technical rocky bits. This is a network of purpose-built single track trails and forest roads that are designated for use by mountain bikes on a way-marked circular route of 16km in length.
The way-marked loop includes long climbs and descents over a wide variety of sometimes difficult terrain on trails that are only suitable for mountain bikes i.e. bikes with 26inch wheels, knobbly tyres and flat handlebars.
Roughly 9km of the way-marked loop is single track and these sections are narrow, sometimes steep trails of not more than 1m in width. On these sections, you will also experience variable surfaces including rocks, mud, roots, loose stones and gravel and they may become slippery in wet weather.
The way-marked loop accesses high and sometimes exposed ground in remote situations and both bike and rider should be prepared for any eventuality. Please ensure that your bike is in good working order and that you have an appropriate fitness and skill level to undertake these trails.
