Glenart Walk

Trail description

The Glenart Walk rises steadily from the two gate lodges at the forest barrier along the forest road past one of the small streams that bound the northern and southern sides of the wood and joins the loop walk close to the footbridge. Glimpses of Glenart Castle Hotel, which adjoins the Coillte property, are available as the road rises to the loop section.
Walking clockwise around the loop you quickly reach another forest road on your right. Continue straight for approximately 150m  and you reach a junction that leads to the "stone bridge" on the left. A slight diversion from the loop across the stone bridge affords views over Arklow and the coast. Back on the loop walk bear right at the stone bridge as you progress along the southern side of the wood. A quarry is lies on your right and 300m further on you turn right at a junction. A further 500m further on the road bends to the right as you continue along the northern side of the walk. The loop is completed at the footbridge and walkers leave the site by retreating down the forest road on the left to the forest barrier.
