Description of Trail

This loop follows red arrows on tarmac and forestry roads, grassy track and mountain paths with one rough section which can be boggy and wet in places. There are some ascents and descents with the initial ascent very steep while the others are more gradual. The loop goes through forest, with two sections along forest edge and some open mountain. The views are stunning, along the coast to the north and south, across Carlingford Lough to the Mourne Mountains while in good conditions the Isle of Man is visible.
