About

The Rostrevor Black Trail raises the stakes that little bit more for mountain bikers. Diverging significantly from the red loop, the 19km of black trails will push riders further, and give even more back. 

With a mouth watering 27km red trail in addition to the 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!
