Slieve Bloom Way

Trail description

For most of its route through Monicknew, the Slieve Bloom Way follows the banks of the Glen river and descends down into the Delour river valley. This section gives nice contrasts of open views higher up to the east and the serene valley below to the west. The Slieve Bloom Way can be followed in both directions from this trailhead - to the east lies open exposed heath land and to the west, quiet mature woodlands in the Delour valley and Baunreagh.
