Description of Trail

This walk follows quiet boreens, country roads, some with grass in the centre, gravel bog road and forest track in an area of rich cultural significance including ancient rignforts, the remains of court tombs and pre-bog stone walls through a diverse landscape of rolling fields, cattle and sheep rearing land, dispersed family-farm settlements, coniferous forest, deciduous woods, flat bogland and an impressive walled garden in the grounds of an eighteenth centry Anglo-Irish country estate with impressive views of the Nephin Mountain Range.
