Passing a beautiful forest lake and impressive Irish Castle, this blue trail offers incredible panoramic views and flowing singletrack all just minutes from the lively village of Castlewellan. The trail is pretty easy going throughout and begins by running parallel to Castlewellan Lake on an elevated singetrack trail with stunning views of the forest park before rejoining the gentler green route back to the trailhead. The first half of this trail undulates through woodland on singletrack with a number of rollers thrown in to make for a fun trail, perfect for beginners, young families and/or those looking develop to their bike handling skills.
Castlewellan is located just over 30 miles from Belfast and only 4 miles from the popular seaside resort of Newcastle.
Castlewellan Forest Park is located off Main Street. Follow the forest road (one way) down to the lake and keep left. The trailhead car park will be on your left hand side. TRAILHEAD POST CODE: BT31 9BU.
