About

This red trail accompanies the blue trail on its winding ascent from the upper car park.

At the fork junction follow the red arrows on the right hand forest road for a long, steady climb up the slopes of Beleevnamore Mountain.

At the top, you can just about catch your breath before it is stolen from you again on either optional descent; both of which offer heart-racing singletrack, berms, rock drops and extreme slab features.

There is no doubt Davagh Forest comes alive on this exhilarating red trail.
