route description

This gentle trail is suited to young families and those trying out mountain biking for the first time.

Starting on wide forest roads, the green trail is the perfect way to get to know your mountain bike and get a feel for riding off-road trails in a forest environment.

The second half of this easy going trail winds through woodland before crossing Davagh Water and following the meandering river back to the trailhead.

Please note, walkers are permitted to use this trail in the opposite direction to mountain bikers.
