Rostrevor Mountain Bike Trails: A Mountain Bikers' Haven with Stunning Coastal Views

Rostrevor Mountain Bike Trails located on the shores of Carlingford Lough offer some challenging mountain biking where efforts are rewarded with incredible coastal views and exhilarating singletrack descents.

With a mouth watering 27km red trail and a hair raising 19km black trail Rostrevor is believed by many to be the top spot for mountain biking in Ireland. When you add not just one but two purpose-built downhill trails to the mix, there's no denying it… Rostrevor is a mountain bikers' haven!

Rostrevor Red Trail (16.4 miles)

The 27-kilometer red trail at Rostrevor Mountain Bike Trails provides a leg workout but more than compensates with scenic views. Located on the shores of Carlingford Lough, the Rostrevor Mountain Bike Trails offer challenging mountain biking where efforts are rewarded with stunning coastal views and thrilling single-track descents.

Rostrevor Black Trail (10.4 miles)

The Rostrevor Black Trail presents a more challenging experience for experienced mountain bikers. Deviating substantially from the red loop trail, the 19km of black trails will test riders' abilities further and provide an even more rewarding experience.

This black trail follows the same route as the red trail to the summits of Slievemartin and Slievebane before splitting off at Rostrevor Forest. From there, the trail navigates a technically demanding section of single track trail before connecting to the return route along Kilbroney Valley back to the starting point. This advanced route requires a high level of mountain biking skills and is best attempted by riders with considerable off-road cycling experience.

Rostrevor Downhill Mega Mission (0.8 miles)

Mega Mission Trail is one of the fastest and most technical trails in the region. An uplift service is available to shuttle riders to the top of the southern slopes of Slievebane mountain, from which the Mega Mission Trail begins its descent.

Designed for maximum excitement, the Mega Mission Trail presents a challenging test of bike handling ability. Riders can expect to push their skills to the limit on this lightning-fast downhill route.

Rostrevor On the Pulse (0.8 miles)

Riders can expect their adrenaline levels to be high from the very beginning of the On the Pulse trail. Featuring numerous rock drops and technically challenging bermed turns, On The Pulse also now benefits from the newly constructed section at the bottom of the trail.
