Loughmoss, Carryduff, Belfast, Down

Badger Rating 3.8/5
23 miles, some tarmac and gravel riding, but loads of fantastic off-road trails, everything from fast flowing stuff to tight and technical. About 3 hrs door-to-door, depending on levels of fitness and faffing about!

  • after silo pit we built at the end of that single track a few jumps during the sumer but some recked them was a good place to session
  • when we were kids we freakin loved the duckwalk. great trail in among the fields with some nice scenery on the way. do people regularly walk it on Tuesday nights now??? I might see if I can make a meet if so
  • Did most of this route yesterday, very enjoyable and a real eyeopener to the amount of good quality trails in and around the south Belfast area.

    The trickiest bit to find, and also the best section in my opinion is found at the edge of a silo pit at the back of purdysburn hospital. A nice section of singletrack running all the way down past Hydebank the full length of the hill.

NOTE: The trails on this site have been ridden before, but you should not interpret their inclusion as an indication that mountain-biking is officially sanctioned on them. Seeking permission from landowners is your own responsibility, as is conducting yourself in a manner that is courteous, respectful to the environment, and conscious of the safety of others.
