Loop Walk

Trail description

This walk starts opposite the car-park following the red waymarkers all the way around. The first section is quite sheltered under a high and dense canopy. Indeed on a showery day, you will emerge to surprise that it may have rained while you were on the trail! It takes you through some fine stands of mature Yew trees. Traditionally known as the tree that was planted in grave yards, these magnificent Yew are one of the country's finest examples of the species.

There are a number of other fine old broadleaf trees here and this route is very popular with children as the trees are tagged and named to help with recognition.

When you come out of this section and into the car-park, cross over the Burncourt river using the new bridge and continue on to the left and up the hill. The trail enters some mature conifer crops and loops around to return you to the bridge after 1 km.
