Ticknock Mountain Biking Trails

Trail description

This is a challenging, rocky, technical trail throughout.  Forest road climbs lead you into singletrack, varying from fast, open and flowing to twisty, technical rocky sections with loads of ups and downs, big descents and berm turns.  This technical trail tests all a rider's skills and abilities - not for novices.

Roughly 4km of the waymarked loop is singletrack and these sections are narrow, sometimes steep trails of not more than 1m in width with variable surfaces, including rocks, mud, roots, loose stones and gravel and they may become slippery in wet weather.  The single track also crosses walking trails at a number of points so take care, caution walkers.  The remaining 4km of the waymarked loop are forest roads and you should expect to encounter vehicles and other forest users at any time on these parts of the loop.

The trail is quite exposed on the upper slpes and can be very windy in poor weather.  Please ensure your bike is in good working order and that you have an appropriate fitness and skill level to undertake these trails.  All riders should be appropriately dressed and wear a helmet at all times.  Please ride with consideration for the many other forest users.
