Mountain Biking Ticknock

****   Add a review
#1 of 17 mountain bike trails in Ireland
#3,047 in the world

This is a challenging, rocky, technical trail throughout. Forest road climbs lead
you into singletrack, varying from fast, open and flowing to twisty, technical rocky
sections with loads of ups and downs, big descents and berm turns. This
technical trail tests all a rider's skills and abilities - not for novices. The trail is
quite exposed on the upper slpes and can be very windy in poor weather. For
more details:

    Great Trails but a long climb to get up to the trails especially if you intend on starting from the top of the mountain, i would recommend going down a easy beginner trail called barn stormer its the first trail you should see making the climb up then going up toms climb a simple tech trail to quite a large tech climb up to a fast trail at the top this is more for advanced riders. The best trail is probably Metro.

    Great trail to ride. the have a nice loop around the mountain. They are woking on cutting in "down" trails that will look to be double black. The outer loop was very well marked.
    Once they get it all cut in, this will be a 5 star.
    Garth at the bike.ie where i rented the bike was great. if i every get back in Dublin, i will most definatly ride here again.

    Beautiful scenery of Dublin, the bay and the coast. Well-maintained singletrack with boulders and fireroad climbs.
