      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.

      Set your bike type to "Downhill" or "All Mountain" to show only the unofficial trails, and "XC" to show only the official trails and fireroads
      eBikes Allowed: Yes
      Shuttleable: YES
      AKA: Ros Treabhair, 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.
