Summary:
Starting from the climax of the mountain you can pick any of the many routes.We are really spoiled for choice here.You can also follow the Wicklow Way trail over the mountain from the top of Kilmashogue.You really can work up a sweat up there with your chums trying to get it up,the mountain.*Remember*To lubricate your parts;chains,cogs etc.And be carefull boys & play nice

Recommended Route:
Personally me and my chums like to give the boneshaker a jolly good thrashing every week.Me and my partner would recommend wearing helmets...remember Always Use Protection.

Summary:
drive past the first car park, park at the second. from here u can choose 2 different routes down to the lower carpark, it'll only be a quick blast, but it'll start u off nicely. any trail is rideable at that level.
the trails cover everything, wet forest (winter/autumn/sprin/summer) dry forest (summer/autumn) loose rock fields, fire roads, technical ups and downs, jumps and so on. caters for all

Recommended Route:
go to the top, use any tracks u want, aslong as it goes up you'll get there. once u get to the masts (you cant miss em) u have a choice of going up higher (theres a track leading off upward, its called fairy castle, hard climb, great tech DH.) from the masts, go anywhere.
if u head down a rocky fire road with dips and hills, try hit them at the lowest point or the speed u pick up will throw u off. this is the bone shaker. take the first left about 20 -30 seconds down the track and follow the skinny single track. this will bring u back out onto the road. go str8 across the road and down another steep ricky track, beware of ur speed, u will stop half way down and turn to the right.
this bring u through the trees until u are out in the second car park. go down futher if u want or go back up again.
recently there have been alot of jump spots going up, they are all around the second car park.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
be very careful if u go up on a sunday, because there has been a revival of hill walkers up there. most of them are unfortunately sunday walkers who have little respect, no dissing the regular walkers. just be careful and slow down when u see em, making sure they know ur there.

Summary:
The wicklow way starts off on a fire trail like any where else, but once you are at the top. Its rocks, bombholes, jumps, bumps, bog, rot, fog, rain (most of the time)and wind...now you are really out in the open. I love it there, so bring a spar tube or you will be walkin' (1 out of 10 puncture up there)

Recommended Route:
For a stranger to Ireland, buy an ordinane survey map. Follow the Wicklow way hiking trail, although its illegal for MTB well I've never been stopped or my freinds, its just what the signs says. Eniskerry is as far as you want to go. My favourite is to make my way to A park called massey park, there is a cool fast downhill you can push it through the woods. There are some great drops offs hidden at the side of the trail.

Reviewed by: Al , from Dublin

Summary:
One of the best mtbing places in Dublin good for everyone from begineers to experienced riders loads of other trails there so you never get bored the single track from the forest down is some of the best ive ridden really fast it gets a bit tricky when theres a few line choices but after a while you get used to it. Watch out for walkers and mxers usually not to many problems but you might get one or two freaks.

Recommended Route:
Down the rocky fire road from the mast first left(or you can go straight if you want) and back down across the fire road take the right after the road crossing (its hidden so watch out) this will send you back to the carpark go back to the bottom of the main fire road to the mast and take the track in the middle into the forest go to the end and go down through the forest get back onto the main trail at the bottom of the forest follow the single track and go left after the grass patch

Other recommended trails in the same area:
the short jump track at the carpark 30 seconds of fun you can do over again and again best done with a couple of mates so you can race each other
