Route Description

This walk starts in the car park and heads back along the direction of the main entrance road for a short stretch before swinging into an open grassy area and towards Carnagh Lake. The trail continues straight ahead to where it meets the forest road. The Lake is visible throughout this section. After continuing for a short distance on the forest road, the trail enters the woodland and hugs the edge of the Lake before emerging back onto the open grassy area. From here return to the car park.
