Jenkinstown Loop

Trail description

Starting from the map board at the car park, exit through the "door-in-the-wall" and turn left on to the woodland path following the purple arrow (green arrows are for the shorter loop). Follow this path for 150m to reach a t-junction with a sandy roadway where you turn left. Now the loop begins to ascend gently and passes a track (on your right) to St. Colman's Well.  Approximately 300m later you reach a 3 way junction where the green loop turns left, head to your right here.  Less than 100m further on, you reach a sharp left bend in the roadway (a good viewing point) keep left here.  Continue to follow the purple arrows down the forest road, on your right you will notice the old stone wall belonging to the estate, there are a few gaps where you can look out and view the surrounding countryside.  After 1.5 km the loop sweeps left around a sharp corner.  You are now on the home stretch towards the car park where the walk started.
