This trail follows forest tracks, minor roads, regional roads and grass tracks to link the two villages of Broadford and Ashford, passing through a pleasant tree-lined avenue, a dairy farm, Coillte forest, beside Lough Ghe (a National Heritage Area) and over quiet streams with the chance to hear the cuckoo in summer and glimpse a hen harrier, while spectacular views are of the surrounding countryside including the Shannon Estuary, Knockfiera and the Ballyhoura Mountains.
