This Red Trail enjoys the initial flowing singletrack and incredible panoramic views found on Castlewellan's blue trail before splitting off and ascending behind Castlewellan Castle and past a number of little known smaller lakes. The fun then really begins when both the red and black options descend either side of Slievenaslat before sweeping back around to Cypress Pond. There is a further black option 'Dolly's Chute' set to get your heart racing with 'Moorish Return' always a crowd pleaser for the homeward leg back to the trailhead. The lively Castlewellan Village is a great spot for a post trails pint.
