      Rostrevor's trails are generally steeper than other forests in NI, but are usually quite fast (compared to a lot of the steep trails in Donard). Contains a couple of official XC loops, a couple of official DH tracks and about a dozen unsanctioned DH tracks of varying difficulties.
      eBikes Allowed: Yes
      Shuttleable: YES
      AKA: Rossi, Kilbroney
      Land Status: National Forest
      Disclaimer:
      Watch for the differing difficulty scales! The unsanctioned trails are all DH tracks, and are a couple of difficulty levels up from the official XC trails - i.e. a blue unsanctioned run is similar in difficulty to the black official XC run.
      This region uses the Uk/Euro style trail grading system.
