Description of Trail

If you are lucky you may see otters, natterjack toads, curlew, sea bass, sea trout and salmon as well as sheep, foxes, hares and wild goats on this walk. It brings you through fields, along river banks and a mountain path with some old bóithríns, quiet roads and a short section on the R56, passing an old thatched cottage and close to an interesting old graveyard. There are great views north to the Slieve Mish Mountains and south over Castlemaine Harbour and towards Carrauntoohil (Ireland's highest mountain).
