Ballyhoura Mountain Bike Trails are the largest mountain bike trail network of it’s kind in Ireland and provides 96km of purpose build way marked off road trails in the Ballyhoura Mountains along with showers, toilets, secure car parking at the trail head.
98 km of trails including forest road climbs, tight twisty singletrack with loads of ups and downs, board walk, tight turns and technical rocky bits are gauranteed to leave you smiling. The trails range from the moderate 6 km Greenwood loop to the demanding Castlepook loop, over 50 km in length!
Each of the loops are waymarked in one direction and are laid out as 'stacked loops' with each each loop leading onto the next and rejoining it on the way back.
Read the detailed trail information signs at the trail head to pick the trail suitable for you. The grading system used indicates the minimum level of fitness and competence required for each loop.
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.
