About

The 27km 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.

The 19km black trail follows the same route as the red trail to the summit of Slievemartin and around Slievebane before splitting off at Rostrevor Forest.

This trail then navigates a heart-racing section of technical singletrack to meet the return route along Kilbroney Valley back to the trailhead. This is a challenging route only suitable for experienced mountain bikers.

The 'Mega Mission' downhill trail has been designed to put the fun factor right off the richter scale! Starting on the southern slopes of Slievebane, this lightning quick Downhill route will push your bike handling skills right to the limit.

Big jumps, big berms with secret booters wait around every corner.

On the Pulse, another downhill trail is highly technical and complements its natural surroundings.

Big boulder fields, drop offs and the odd gap jump if you can find the speed will challenge the racers amongst us.
