Red Walk (Ballygannon)

Trail description

This trail begins in the car park and takes the forest road down the hill through some Scots Pine and Norway Spruce. Follow the path to bring you up through the spruce plantation towards the county road. Marked on the map, there is a grove dedicated to the memory of abused children which, while not on the trail, can be visited.

Having crossed the main road with due care, you are now in one of the 16 People 's Millennium Forests established in 2000. This planted area replaces a crop of Norway Spruce planted in 1950.  All the species planted here now are native to this island.

Care must again be taken when re-crossing the road to the car park to finish the walk.
