What Does Gortin Glen Forest Park MTB Trails Look Like?

Posted on February 1, 2021 @ 11:21 AM in Mountainbiking

Covid-19 Restrictions have meant that not everyone has got to travel to Northern Ireland's newest mountain bike trail centre in Gortin Glen Forest Park. So we've asked a few of our followers who have been for their photos so you can see what to look forward to!


The majesty of the Sperrins is hard to deny in Leigh Moore's epic snap from Gortin.

David Doherty's panormaic has a hint of the Misty Mountains from Lord of the Rings.

This picture is partly to show off the epic landscape you can expect and part because we want Karl Price's bike

Actually we'd like Darreen Harpur's bike here too please.

The recent snow and frost in Gortin only added to the epic scenery, as shown by another picture of Darreen's (please don't call in those royalties too soon Darreen!)


We love this shot from Paul Hyndman that hints at the scale of the trails in Gortin Glen Forest Park.


This is just a genuinely beautiful shot full stop, courtesy of the guys and girls at Gortin MTB Club. It shows you'll find beauty in more than just the top of mountains.


A slightly eerie shot from Stephen McCay. Dig this.

Flow all day long - picture from Donal Martin.

We're grateful to everyone who shared their pictures. Want to know more about Gortin MTB Trails? Visit their trail page on now and feel free to use the #GortinMTB

Hardest thing about Mountain Biking? Definitely the trees.
