Are you a beginner or have you mountain biked before? That’s a very important question before you begin. Biking is great, but you should know your limitations. We’ve colour coded our trails so you can plan your adventure based on what you think you can handle. Check out what our colour codes mean below, and maybe you can level up your biking soon!

About
Our
Trails

We call our approach to our trails ‘Progressive’ because we want to continue to grow, adapt, and provide every opportunity for bikers to challenge themselves. We now have 20 trails of various difficulty and skill level, and we provide all the resources for beginners to learn the hobby. We also have 5 uplift vans with trailers for easy climbing of the mountain, so you can get right into the action.

We want to continue to grow how Ireland mountain bikes. In 2021, we constructed and released 6 new trails for those in the park.
