Short Routes

You don’t have to cycle for miles and miles to enjoy cycling in Northern Ireland.

Country parks, forest parks, tow paths and disused railways are home to short cycle routes under 10 miles.  Many are traffic-free so therefore perfect for some family fun.

Just Some Ideas

Castle Archdale Family Cycling Trail,

Situated 15km north west of Enniskillen, this 6 mile cycle route weaves its way through 230 acres of mature forest situated on the shores of Lower Lough Erne, enabling the cyclist to explore over 1000 years of history.

Omagh Riverside Path to Gortnagarn,

This 5.5 mile flat cycle route samples part of National Cycle Network 92 and takes in some of Tyrone's most tranquil scenery.

Musgrave Park,

This route explores attractive parkland with beautiful floral displays.

Larne to Brown’s Bay,

Cross Larne Lough in a 30 foot ferry boat and cycle 2 miles to sandy Brown's Bay Beach. In a very short space of time you will be in a delightfully quiet and unspoiled part of Northern Ireland.

Gosford Forest Park,

Not only a fantastic cycle trail but a wonderful forest filled with incredible flora and fauna. The trail combines forest roads with two short sections of single track. The trail is suitable for cyclists with basic off-road cycling skills.

Ballycarton Wood/Binevenagh trail,

A short linear route from Ballycarton Wood, along the forest track through Binevenagh Forest. Undulating track offers great views of the cliffs and glimpses of Lough Foyle, Magilligan and Benone Strand.

Downhill Beach also lies in the area.
