Rostrevor Red Trail
The red loop at Rostrevor Mountain Bike Trails burns the legs but more than rewards the eyes. Situated on the shores of Carlingford Lough, the Rostrevor Mountain Bike Trails 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.
