Mountain Biking Ballinastoe

****   Add a review
#8 of 16 mountain bike trails in Ireland
#9,528 in the world

One of the few approved trails for mountain bike use in all of Ireland. A
blend of fire road climbs, totaling 900 feet of ascent, followed by long
singletrack descents, which account for about 60% of the distance. On the
western slope of the Wicklow mountains, you will pass through thick old
growth forests and see valleys of farms. You may even pass near herds of
sheep. The singletrack and view are worth a visit. The trails wind quickly
and are speckled with smooth stones but they hardly rise above the dirt
surface. It is Ireland so bring a something waterproof. You can find a trail

    Really fun rolling trail great for a day out with a beginner group, as I didn't come across anything scary as a MTB first timer. The scenery is some of the best in the counrey

    Just a fun trail good climbs, nothing too technical. Good spot to train in a short period of time. Great bike rental provided and can buy snacks and drinks if your are too hungover to get it together in the morning! Had a blast then off to Wicklow gap for stunning drive and Glendalough for a bite and a pint.
