Garrane Loop - Cork

Trail description

The Garrane Loop ventures westwards from Waypoint 3 taking in some long and fast singletrack descents as well as some long and demanding climbs on forest roads, tracks and singletrack trails.

The singletrack found on this Loop is technical in places with numerous very tight turns, steep descents and features such as small rock steps, exposed roots and elevated timber boardwalks. Trail surfaces vary a lot including loose gravel, rocks, mud and water and can be very uneven and extremely narrow with encroaching vegetation, boulders and trees.

Follow the white waymarkers all the way, passing Waypoints 4, 5 and 6 as you go. These Waypoints provide opportunities to either cut short the loop or to extend onwards.

This loop features numerous long climbs and takes in areas of high ground that can be exposed to bad weather. Make sure that both you and your bike are well prepared and always tell someone where you are going and when you expect to get back and always ride within your limits. Have a great ride!!
