This loop is the perfect introduction to mountain biking with easy climbs and fun singletrack descents. It is essentially one gradual climb followed by one long descent with most of the loop on narrow, twisty singletrack trails which have very variable surfaces including, loose rocks and gravel, mud, water and protruding roots and may be quite slippery when wet. The singletrack trails are quite technical in places and feature some elevated timber boardwalk sections with exposed edges.  There are also likely to be encroaching vegetation and trees throughout.

Important information Construction works on the Castlepook wind farm in the Ballyhouras commenced on Monday 25th April, 2016. This work is due to continue until the Autumn of 2017. In the interest of public safety a section of the Blue MTB trail along with all of the Red MTB trail from post 50 will be unavailable for the duration of the project.
