Ticknock Mountain Bike trail provides a challenging, rocky, technical trail throughout. Forest road climbs lead you into singletrack, varying from fast, open and flowing to twisty, technical rocky sections with loads of ups and downs, big descents and berm turns. This technical trail tests all a rider's skills and abilities - not for novices.
Roughly 4km of the waymarked loop is singletrack and these sections are narrow, sometimes steep trails of not more than 1m in width with variable surfaces, including rocks, mud, roots, loose stones and gravel and they may become slippery in wet weather. The single track also crosses walking trails at a number of points so take care, caution walkers. The remaining 4km of the waymarked loop are forest roads and you should expect to encounter vehicles and other forest users at any time on these parts of the loop.
Exit M50 at Junction 13 and travel along Leopardstown Road, Hillcrest and Blackglen road. Turn left into Ticknock road and continue on approx 1km to Ticknock car park. From the car park, cycle up the forest road to the aerials to find the start of the sanctioned trails.
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.
