Description of Trail

This trail offers pleasant walking on minor roads, forest tracks and forest and bog paths and old sunken tracks through a variety of landscape, including farmland, evergreen and deciduous woodland and blanket bog. The expansive bogland at the highest point is a good example of cutover and recovering blanket bog and also provides extensive views in all directions including towards the Slieve Aughty Mountains and the Burren while the Hen Harrier and Merlin are resident in the general area.
