Mountain Bike Trails at Blessingbourne
Blessingbourne Estate’s exhilarating 13k Mountain Bike Trails and pump track provides one of Northern Ireland’s premier Mountain Biking experiences. Located within the grounds of the 550 acre country Estate.
Set in the heart of woodlands and wildlife nestled on the edge of County Tyrone and the Sperrins and the Fermanagh Lakelands. Enjoy cycling through the Estate’s woods and take in the private lakes and nature reserve. Located just off the main A4 Belfast to Enniskillen road, minutes from the lively village of Fivemiletown.
Designed by Architrail’s Phil Saxena, who also designed trails for the Beijing Olympics and the Downhill World Cup. Therefore, the trails cater for all ages and abilities from complete beginners to those searching for that all important adrenaline fix. In addition to this, the blend of beautiful blue trails to the dramatic red/black technically challenging loops trails has something for everyone to enjoy.
The snaking single-track has lots of trail features including jumps, table-tops, berms, rock-gardens and drops; and chicken-runs for the kids and the faint-hearted, of course!
Blessingbourne’s mountain biking facilities also include a pump track and skills area, which exposes opportunities for improvement. The criss-crossing track contains bumps, jumps, dips and berms, and you need to really use your body-weight to get round it with your dignity intact. A great place to hone a few handling skills, it is located right at the trail-head, so it’s a good place to warm up before you hit the trails proper.
