This trail incorporates part of the Castle Loop including its most prominent features. Additionally, it affords superb views of the surrounding countryside including the woodlands of Kilbree, Ballyoughtera and Castlemartyr. In summer the fragrance of the native Wild Woodbine can be savoured as it grows in abundance among the traditional hedgerows of the area. Part of the trail runs alongside a 16th century stone wall which enclosed the Castlemartyr Estate of Richard Boyle the First Earl of Cork and ancestor to the Earls of Shannon who resided there. The trail incorporates part of the Lake Loop on its return to the Church car park along country roads and laneways.
