River Trail

Trail description

Start at a small car park near a timber bridge and walk along by the infant Owencashla river  as it cascades down over huge boulders creating many mini waterfalls and winding its way through mature Sitka spruce trees. This river, with its gravel and stony bed provides the perfect spawning ground for salmon and brown trout. As you walk along notice the boulder strewn landscape across the river. Here you catch glimpses of Stradbally mountain in the background. At the top of the trail take a left along an old forest "rideline" and back on to the road. Stroll at your ease along the forest road, through tall Sitka spruce trees and back to the car park.
