Derryvunny Greenwood Trail

Trail description

This part multi access trail takes you through a forest diverse in both age and species.  Near the picnic site you will see a large hedgerow with a range of species including holly, hazel, blackthorn and birch.  These hedgerows are valuable sources of food for wildlife.  Further along the trail the soil conditions are wet and here you will see birch, alder and willow.  Have a look at the newly constructed water feature.  Over time it is hoped that frogs will use it and new water loving plants will colonise it.  

There is a viewing area among the furze dominated hill, that allows you to see the local landscape and Lough Key in the distance.  As you return to the car park the farmland was planted with native broadleaf trees including oak, birch, holly and alder.
