This loop follows green arrows along the embankment of the Shannon Headrace as far as Parteen Weir, returning along the banks of the River Shannon. Apart from the climb up the road to join the embankment and descent off it, this is a level walk on grassy and riverside paths. It is a very pleasant countryside walk although some of the riverbank may be wet.

Had a lovely afternoon walk. I am beginner hiker, so this was perfect for me. Walk took me longer though...as I like to take photos and got great shots along the way and wandered here and there, even put my toes to water. Found geocache on this loop. www.geocaching.com
