Portumna Forest Park is located just outside the town of Portumna (approx. 1.3km from Dick’s Bike Hire. There are 2 ways of getting to the forest park.
Route 1: The main road
You can access the forest park by taking the R352 (heading towards Mountshannon.) The park entrance is 1km from the town on the left-hand side. Note: This is quite a busy road and is not suited for younger cyclists.
Route 2: The forest road
You can also enter the forest park via the forest road, this entrance is located next to the marina and is a much safer route for families as the trail is for walkers and cyclists only.
Family cycling: The inner loop is 1.5kms long and with a tarred surface, it is ideal for teaching kids to cycle and for all range of bikes – toy bikes, tag-a-longs and child seats.
Leisure cycling: There is now a loop which connects to the town along forest roads with smooth and compact surfaces. Leave the car-park and follow the family friendly route bringing you down to Castle Harbour and into the town. This route is suited for our 4 wheeler and tandems, click here to view our range of family bikes.
