05 Apr Kinnitty Mountain Biking Trails
Kinnitty Mountain Biking Trails Slieve Bloom Mountains Offaly.
The Slieve Bloom Mountain biking trails opened in April 2022. Kinnitty village is the trailhead where you will find in the centre of the village a mapboard of the trails, coffee shop, some parking, coffee shop and toilets. New sections of the Slieve Bloom Mountain Biking trails have been added at Kinnitty. There are now three routes to choose from a blue grade and two tougher red grade loops. To access the trails from Kinnitty follow the signed route through the GAA pitch until you reach the single track trails which start in the woods beyond Kinnitty Castle through beautiful forest uphill to open land with wonderful views.
There are three routes to choose from, one of which is blue grade, the other is a more more challenging red grade loop. The trails take the riders through beautiful forest and open land with fantastic views over Kinnitty Castle and beyond. Forest road climbs lead you into tight twisty singletrack with loads of fast descents, ups and downs, tight turns and technical rocky bits, guaranteed to leave you smiling! The trails are waymarked in one direction, please follow the arrows.
