Glenafelly Eco Walk

Trail description

The Glenafelly loop walk travels along the side of the Glenafelly River and climbs up to the end of the valley in Barcam. The trail crosses over the 'Doctor's Slough' and descends down to the river once more, passing an old farmstead, which was lived in, until the 1950's.

The route uses forest roads and hiking trails by riverside and through mature and semi-mature conifers. Keep an eye out for majestic stags which graze in the Larch woodland on the right of the forest road on the way out from the trailhead.

Caution: Note that the upper reaches of this valley may have no mobile phone signal. As with all walks in remote areas, tell someone where you are going and what time you are likely to return. This walk requires sturdy trail runners or walking boots. Bring protective clothing as sections can be exposed to the elements.
