Blessingbourne Estate MTB Trails Reopened


Blessingbourne Estate Mountain Bike Trails have reopened as of Friday 5th June. 

Access is via the pay barrier as usual and sanitiser is available.

All official MTB Trails in Northern have now reopened, with the exception of the DH trails at Rostrevor.

The trails reopening is great news for mountain bikers. Outdoor Recreation Northern Ireland recommends the following advice:

Stay Local

  • Respect the wishes of landowners and local communities
  • Expect some changes – the majority of toilets, on-site visitor facilities, playgrounds and baby changing remain closed
  • Plan your day around your needs and what will be available – check reliable websites

Stay Apart

  • Maintain social distancing from those not living in your household – stay at least 2 metres apart
  • Meet in groups of 6 or less – if meeting those from outside your household
  • Avoid peak times and popular honeypot sites – do you really want to be around large groups of people?

Stay Safe

  • Respect our emergency services – now is not the time to end up in hospital
  • Scale back your ambitions – choose activities that are within your skills and capabilities
  • Park with care – careless parking can create a road hazard or block access for Emergency Services, local farmers and residents
