Forest Stroll

Trail description

This looped trail takes you through a conifer plantation which was reforested in 1980. The original area was planted in 1952 and some of the Grand Fir and Beech still remain on site. The main species are Sitka spruce a native of the west coast of north America, and Norway spruce from central Europe. The forest road section of trail follows the old Great Northern Railway line. The old station house was located close to the village of Pettigo. The trains travelled to Dublin, Enniskillen, Ballyshannon and Bundoran.  The station closed in 1957, due to the increase of road transport. Along this trail you will encounter some interesting residents of the wood, these are the sculpture trail.
