Blessingbourne Mountain Bike Trails and Pump Track
The Blessingbourne Mountain Bike Trails, near Fivemiletown, lie in the heart of the Clogher Valley close to the border between counties Tyrone and Fermanagh. We have recently won the award for Best Mountain bike friendly accommodation for 2016 from MountbikeNI.
Packed full of technical trail features such as berms, table tops and rock drops, the trails at Blessingbourne cater for all ages and abilities and always provides a fun day out.
Afterwards call into 'Pinochos at Blessingbourne’, a dedicated coffee cabin at the trail head, where you enjoy the great coffee and refreshments, light lunches and divine homemade treats (open weekends and Bank Holidays).

The Blessingbourne Pump Track is a short criss-crossing circular trail of rollers and berms where you use your weight distribution on the bike to flow over the features without having to use your pedals.
Purists might tackle this pump track without pedaling however it is generally used as a great place to fine tune techniques and line choices before heading out on the trails.
The trails have been created by the world class Phil Saxena from Architrail, course designer for the Beijing Olympics. We can offer skills courses and light refreshments for booked groups, bike hire is also available at £12 per person/half day, booking is essential.
Trails are open all day and available to night ride.
