Description of Trail

The Knockmealdown Trails take you on gravelled access roads, old paths and minor tarred roads/boreens, mainly through Coillte forest on the scenic northern slopes of the Knockmealdown Mountains, an area steeped in historical, cultural and ecological interest with attractive vistas across the rich agricultural lowlands to mountains beyond.
