  • Really great walk, well signposted from the “main” road, and across the route, the stiles are in good condition. Amazing views from the top, and a good mix of trackways and open ground. I parked near the old school to cut out the main bit of road walking from Forest Park, but good scenery along the roads as well. Highly recocomend!

  • Highly recommended. We walk this regularly as it is local and we haven’t yet seen anyone else on it even on days when the nearby Forest Park is packed full of walkers. There’s room to park just one car much closer and avoid the road walk

  • Great loop walk of around 4 miles. I parked considerately close to the start of one of the public right if ways rather than having to walk from Gortin Glen on hard tarmac. No views to Donegal when I was there but very pleasant up through the forest and over the top. Green arrows mark the way, the trail is easy to navigate over the moor, and public rights of way are placed at all four corners of the loop. The top is wet and grassy but manageable. I did the loop alone in 1hour 15 mins and that wasn’t pushing it.
