Where can I go mountain biking in Limerick?
Forest road climbs lead you into tight twisty singletracks with loads of ups and downs, tight turns, and technical rocky bits. The trails range from a moderate 6 kilometre Greenwood loop to the demanding Castlepook loop, over 50 kilometres in length. The trails are laid out as ‘stacked loops’ – this means that each loop leads onto the next and re-joins it on the way back. The loops are waymarked in one direction – just pick the colour of the loop. There are 5 loops altogether: Greenwood Loop, Mountrussell Loop, Garrane Loop, Steamhill Loop, Castlepook Loop
