This trail can be used by family cycling groups. The surface is gravel; tarred forest road, wide timber boardwalk and there is a narrow section of trail. The gradient is minimal. It begins along a two-way section and includes an open area, the viewing platform and the duck pond. The viewing platform looks out across Lough Derg and its islands and southwards towards Terryglass while to the right the main expanse of the lake can be seen.

This trail is open and flowing with gentle gradients and, while not technically challenging, is best experienced on a mountain bike.
