Description of Trail

This loop follows blue arrows on old cattle road, firebreak, sandy road, forest road and riverbank, mainly in forestry. It travels in a clockwise direction with some climbing and some descent looping around the southern slopes of a hill in the scenic and relatively isolated lowlands of the Nephin Beg Mountains. The section along the firebreak is soft underfoot and may be prone to waterlogging in wet weather.
