The track is well laid out with various difficulty routes. There are incredible scenic views of the Ballyhoura mountains from the top. Showers and parking are also available.

A very challenging route and a very well organised cycle challenge. I would definitely return again. Great fun, company, a hot cup of tea & sandwiches after were most welcomed. Great facilities at the Ballyhoura MTB trails. Thank you.
