Ballyseedy Wood is a beautiful network of Trails located just south of Tralee town. It is typically used by walkers but also makes an excellent place for a gentle off road cycle.

The trails themselves are quite short but there are so many loops and crossings paths that you could literally cycle there for hours on end if you wanted. The surface is is good condition for a trail but not suitable for racing bikes and tyres. There are two entrances, one on the eastern side (located near manor) and the other on the western side (just off of the N70 and can be quite difficult to find if you don’t know Tralee). The Trails are not very technical in nature but can be narrow in places. Would definately recommend you give this one a try and it’s a great place to bring the family and keep safe from traffic.

Cycle this short route when I want to unwind and typically would only go if the weather is nice. This is a real nature trail if there was ever one. The beautiful smells of wild garlic that grows in the wood really refresh the soul. Just one word of advise is to take this one easy as there are often walkers on the route and make sure to give them plenty time to know that you are approaching.
