Route Description

Blessingbourne Mountain Bike Trail consists of a 4km circular ‘blue’ grade trail and a 8km circular ‘red’ grade trail.


Blue grade trails are moderate and are suitable for intermediate cyclist/ mountain bikers with basic off road riding skill. A good standard of fitness can help.


Red grade trails are difficult and are suitable for proficient mountain bikers with good off-road riding skills and a higher level of fitness and stamina.


The trails contain Technical Trail Features or TTFs, such as rocky sections, drops, bumps and turns – these are designed to teach riders new skills or improve existing skills. TTFs are great fun but riders should not attempt any TTFs unless they are confident of their ability.
