Also worth considering as part of a wider Sperrins epic. It's not THAT difficult to create a ride that takes you over to Gortin Glen! ...

  • An excellent mixture of fast flowing singletrack for xc riders but Davagh also has some nice fast downhill sections and technical features (like the rock garden) great place to test your offroad abilities. Top job to the local creators of this trial, 5 badgers for effort!
  • Tops
  • NI's answer to Kirroughtree! The only place ive found in NI that flows together as one big loop. Love it!
  • Rode Davagh on Saturday there and thought it was super. First time I have rode there since racing there about 13yrs ago so couldn't remember anything but the trails flow well and the climbs are good n smooth. Top marks to all the builders and maintainers
  • see mtbrider forum for info on davagh
  • im only an amature but davagh is a lethal place 4 the bike! the jumps are good, theres good singletrack and plenty of hills to climb, i found it easy enough to learn mtb'n round davagh!
  • do ppl still go out on it on saturdays
  • simply class
  • Some great singletrack, first trip 2day thoroughly enjoyed it.
  • Excellent spot, fantastic trails, superb singletrack. Have yet to meet a walker or come home boggin. Five badgers without a doubt.
  • Great - 12 mile total lap is possible with good mix of terrain and good climb up to trig point. Always drys out really quickly and no walkers. Highly recommended.
  • Excellent trails, brilliant jumps got a bit of everything from small downhill track to fast single track, from fast stony fireroads to long up hill climbs! Its the best place I've been apart from Scottish trails which are in a league of their own!
  • Great craic, not to boggy, good folwing trails for training, really quiet forest and good desents! There is a Downhill course some mates built, tis rather good!
  • Excellent mix of single track and fire road. Good solid trails and plenty of options to keep you riding all day.
  • Some excellent NI riding. The forest is on quite sandy soil, so the trails drain well. The trails themselves seem to be on old walking paths, and so flow fairly well. It takes a while to figure out the lay of the trails, but worth the effort.
  • NI's smaller version of Kirroughtree!
  • Good 10 mile loop for the XC brigade. Some lovely sections of singletrack. I've tried 2-3 other areas and still think Davagh is the best if singletrack is your thing.
  • The local lads have done a great job here. Lots of linking singletrack and some fantastic long descents, with lovely sweeping singletrack and the occasional 'feature'. Worth a visit.
