Ballinastoe Mountain Bike Trail system

This mountain trail takes the rider through some beautiful forest with views east over Calary Common and the Sugarloaf with the sea beyond. At the top of the trail, Lough Tay, ( you may know it as the Guinness lake), and the mountains beyond give views worth the effort of the climb, you will get to see Wicklow at its best.

Experience many types of terrain from open heather moorland on the top through thicket spruce and Scot’s Pine on the lower section. It can get windy and the weather in Ireland is unpredictable so remember to dress for wind on the more exposed parts of the ride and bring raingrear just in case.

The Ballinastoe system is a one-way system constructed to give a challenging and rewarding ride by one of the sports legends. Bikes can be hired via
