This walking trail takes in some of the best views that Drumkeeragh Forest has to offer. The circuit initially follows the perimeter of the woodland before taking you deep in to the heart of the forest. A steady ascent rewards you with panoramic views of the Mourne Mountains and Dundrum Bay before returning to the car park. Note: this trail is not suitable for cyclists. The viewpoint trail follows the purple waymarkers around the forest park.
