ROSTREVOR

Overview

On the shores of Carlingford Lough, the Rostrevor Mountain Bike Trails powered by Chain Reaction Cycles offer some challenging mountain biking where efforts are rewarded with incredible coastal views and exhilarating singletrack descents.

With a mouth watering 27km red trail and a hair raising 19km black trail Rostrevor is believed by many to be the top spot for mountain biking in Ireland.

When you add not just one but two purpose-built downhill trails to the mix, there’s no denying it… Rostrevor is a mountain bikers’ haven!

This red trail will start off with a lung-busting ascent to the heights of Slievemartin, where you can rest assured if the climb hasn’t taken your breath away, the fabulous views over Carlingford Lough will take care of this for you.

You will then be able to enjoy a number of exciting descents and section of northshore over to Yellow Water where the trail turns back and follows the Kilbroney Valley back to the trailhead.

This black trail follows the same route as the red trail to the summit of Slievemartin and around Slievebane before splitting off at Rostrevor Forest.

This trail then navigates a heart-racing section of technical singletrack to meet the return route along Kilbroney Valley back to the trailhead. This is a challenging route only suitable for experienced mountain bikers.

On the Pulse is highly technical and complements its natural surroundings.

Big boulder fields, drop offs and the odd gap jump if you can find the speed will challenge the racers amongst us.

Your arms will be tired but your smiles will be big once you conquer this challenging trail.
