Forest Walk - Marl Bog

Trail description

This walk takes in the duck pond and the wider forest road network, giving the user an opportunity to explore the various different habitats that are present at the Marl Bog. Take time to stop on the back to back timber bridges to view the aquatic life in the stream underneath. It has two long straights which go through the wetter part of the forest. Most of the trees are of the deciduous type on this trail.
