Purple arrow

Description of Trail

This loop follows purple arrows on old cattle road, a narrow path through trees, sandy road, forest road and riverbank mainly in forestry. It travels in a clockwise direction with climbs and descents, some of which are steep, reaching a highpoint of 311m before descending to cross a pass in the scenic and relatively isolated lowlands of the Nephin Beg Mountains. This is a lovely quiet secluded walk with extensive views from the highest point.
