Green Walk (Ballygannon)

Trail description

The trail starts at the car park and takes you along under a stand of Norway Spruce planted in 1950. You are walking parallel to the main road. When crossing the road at the Rathdrum end of the trail one needs to take care.

On the upper side of the trail, the tree cover is now oak which was planted circa 1820 with an understorey of natural holly. Towards the end of this trail, one comes to a striking piece of sculpture called the "BLACK STACK"  which symbolises a petrified tree trunk from an ancient Carboniferous forest. Care must again be taken when crossing the main road back to the car park.
