Barnett Demesne Trails and Jumps Park

Cycling Route

On the outskirts of Belfast, Barnett Demesne boasts mountain biking trails to suit all ages and abilities from young families right through to top riders.

The gentle shared-use green trail runs parallel to the River Lagan and is the ideal way to explore this historic demesne on two wheels. The singletrack blue trail offers more technical mountain biking with red options packed full of technical trail features including boardwalk, log rides, berms, rock gardens, rollers and drops. Ireland’s first official jumps park is not for the faint hearted but if you’re looking for ‘air’ this place ticks all the right boxes!

Green Trail - 3.4 km Circular (1.7km linear)
This is a 1.7km linear mountain biking and walking trail accessible from the trailhead and Shaw’s Bridge Car Park.

Blue Trail - 3.9km
This blue trail consists of tight, winding singletrack perfect for beginners with a bit more confidence right through to experienced riders. There are three red options off this trail which boast a number of more technical trail features including elevated boardwalk, log rides, berms, rock gardens, rollers and drops.

Red Options - 1.5km
