Slieve Bloom Mountain Bike Trails are located in in the heart of Ireland midway between Dublin and Galway with great mountain bike trails starting from the trail heads at Kinnitty and Baunreagh.
This is a network of purpose-built singletrack trails and forest roads that are designed for use by mountain bikes on waymarked circular routes. The routes are graded blue (moderate) and red (difficult/severe). This is the first phase of an extensive trail system being built in the Slieve Blooms. When complete, there will be more than 80kms of trails ranging from blue to black grade trails, complete with full trailhead facilities at Baunreagh and visitor services in Kinnitty village.
The trails will cover a vast swathe of Coillte’s forests from Offaly to Laois and back. This first phase takes the riders through beautiful forest and open land with fantastic views over Kinnitty castle and village and beyond. Forest road climbs lead you into tight twisty singletrack with loads of fast descents, ups and downs, tight turns and technical rocky bits, guaranteed to leave you smiling!
Please note: Distance is calculated as air distance or "as the crow flies" the most direct route between two points, so the distance by road maybe slightly longer.
