About

There are three red options off the main blue trail which boast a number of more technical trail features including elevated boardwalk, log rides, berms, rock gardens, rollers and drops.

Fanplastic will suit more experienced mountain bikers with a number of sweeping berms, double rollers and sections of elevated plastic boardwalk.

Serpentine is the longest red option on the trails and snakes its way through the demesne’s woodland on winding singletrack. Technical trail features include rock gardens, berms, drop offs and a short log ride thrown in to keep you on your toes.

Lose your Barnett can be directly linked with ‘Serpentine’ and is packed full of tight twists and turns as it winds up towards Malone House. Riders will be able to pick up speed on the berms and rollers on the short descent before rejoining the main blue trail.
