This Loop is a big ride in a remote area with some long steep climbs and technical singletrack descents with numerous features such as tight turns, small rock steps, steep sections and exposed roots and includes some of the most technical riding in the Ballyhouras. Trail surfaces vary considerably and can include loose gravel, rocks, mud and water with encroaching vegetation, trees and boulders. The highest point of this Loop can be exposed to bad weather, particularly high winds.
