On Friday 17th June the office closed its doors at 1.00pm for a nice early finish to the weekend. We headed for the mountains!
For anyone looking for a great day out, with a bit of rough and tumble, the Ballyhoura Mountain Bike trail is definitely to be considered.
The largest trail network of its kind in Ireland. 98 km of trails including forest road climbs, tight twisty singletrack with loads of ups and downs, board walk, tight turns and technical rocky bits.
The trails range from the moderate 6 km Greenwood loop to the demanding Castlepook loop, over 50 km in length! (Ok so maybe we did the easy one.....but there's always next time!)
Facilities at the trail head include map boards, car parking, toilets, showers and bike wash facilities. There are also snacks and tea and coffee available.
