Rheola Downhill Trail

Distance: 3 km
Time: 2 - 5 mins

This is a steep and technical course for experienced riders, preferably with downhill-specific mountain bikes. The course is long and punishing with many fast, rooty and rocky sections to negotiate. The terrain is mostly natural downhill with some man-made features such as log drops and swooping berms. The trail crosses the forest road at many points along its length and as walkers and recreational cyclists use this area as well, it is recommended to use caution on approaching the crossings. A full face helmet and protective armour would be a very sensible idea if you intend to ride this trail. It is definitely not one for the faint hearted mountain biker.
