Trail Community

The Twister trail at Kirroughtree is a 17km-long loop that makes for a physically demanding ride. In places, it’s technical, featuring rock steps and drop-offs, but generally the trails are classic cross-country, winding downhill rather than plunging, making the most of the height gained on the climbs.

Many of the technical features don’t have easy alternative routes round them but can be pushed up or down if needed.
