Description of Trail

This section of the Great Western Greenway closely follows the line of the old railway. It is a purpose-built trail, much of which is level but there are a few short steep climbs and descents. There are some interesting bridges. It mostly passes through farmland and there are views of Croagh Patrick and the Nephin mountains. At the Newport end it will be incorporated into the current work on the N59 but in the meantime there is a detour on minor roads to the west of the N59.
