Summary Forested mountain with a good network of paths and tracks and many unmarked mountainbike tracks.

Leinster League event postponed from 2020. April and May are the best times to run an event at Carrick, before the bracken grows up. The forest is large, with sections of deciduous and coniferous trees. This is the Sunday between Easter and the Irish Championships. The event will be pre-entry only. More information, including precise location of parking and access, will be on the IOA Forum and at closer to the event.

In addition to the normal league courses there will be a Short Green (non-league) course which will be as technical but not as physical as the Green course. All the courses will have a walk back on paths from the finish to download, with a stiff climb, not suitable for buggies.

The map is 1:10000 scale with 5 m contours, A4 size on waterproof paper. The Brown course will have a map flip where the course is in two parts, printed on both sides of the map. Contactless punching will not be set up.

Parking will be on forest roads - please drive slowly and carefully in the forest.

From Dublin, take the N11/M11 south as far as Junction 16. Turn right in Rathnew onto the R752 signposted for Rathdrum. Access to the forest is from the west side of the area and will be signposted from the junction of the R752 and L2116 about 2 km SW of Glenealy village. See location map of forest entrance here.
