Description of Trail

This walk is on path and forest road. It goes along the river through mature coniferous woodland as far as the site of the old mill, passing the Clamp Hole, the largest waterfall on the river. It returns on the side of the mountain through conifer trees with views out over Co Offaly and towards Croghan Hill. This is a remote, quiet and peaceful place in a steep valley. The terrain can be rough in parts and sometimes wet underfoot.
