This loop is the perfect introduction to mountain biking with easy climbs and fun singletrack descents and is the shortest of all the loops giving a great flavour of the Ballyhoura Trails. It is essentially one gradual climb followed by one long descent with all but 1.5 km of the loop on narrow, twisty singletrack trails.

The singletrack trails are quite technical in places and feature some elevated timber boardwalk sections with exposed edges. Some of the trails can be quite slippery in wet weather. The singletrack trails are all very narrow (not more than 1m wide) and have very variable surfaces including, loose rocks and gravel, mud, water and protruding roots. There
are also likely to be encroaching vegetation and trees throughout.
