Lough Eske Loop Ard na Mona Reserve

(0 reviews)

Ardnamona wood nature reserve is a native oak woodland, approximately 456.6 hectares in size which lies approx. 5km north east of Donegal Town. This marvellous quiet Nature Reserve with a nicely created walking path loops around large oak, hazel and holly trees in a Woodland that is left in its natural state. There are beautiful mosses, bluebells, wood sorrel, streams and the lakeside to enjoy on this delightful walk developed by National Parks and Wildlife Service. The wood is also home to red squirrel, badger, fox and mink. The route is classed as moderate because there are a few short but steep inclines on the route.
