The Mountrussell Loop is one of five loops in the Ballyhoura Mountain Bike Trail Centre.

The Mountrussell Loop is a more technical and physically demanding version of the Greenwood Loop and follows this as far as Waypoint 1, from where the trails become a bit more technical, narrower, rockier and steeper with more climbing and more descending.

The Mountrussell Loop is one of five loops in the Ballyhoura Mountain Bike Trail Centre.

Trail Start/Finish Point: Car Park
Length: 17km
Time : 2 hrs
Degree of Difficulty: Moderate / Difficult
Trail Waymarking Colour: Brown

The Ballyhoura Mountain Bike Trails are the largest trail network of its kind in Ireland and provides many options for off-road cycling in the mountains. Forest road climbs lead you into tight twisty singletrack 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 rejoins it on the way back. The loops are waymarked in one direction – just pick the colour of the loop.

The trail system, designed by one of the world leaders in the sport, is a challenging, one-way system constructed to give a challenging and rewarding ride.
