Following glorious forest tracks, woodland paths and riverbank through Glenanaar Forest and along the banks of the Ogeen River watch out for the natural well, the bluebells in May, a standing stone and a mossy mass rock. There are fine views of the Blackwater Valley and the Nagle and Knockmealdown Mountains.

Just back from an organised I.M.R.A, organised Trail run (my first). I really enjoyed this run, it was a challenge as it was my first. Lovely run through the woods and paths. Lovely to run beside the river and feel close to nature. Would recommend it and hopefully my first of many runs in the woods.....

A lovely walk through forest, some really nice grass paths and well maintained. Walk along the river is great. Easy walk though a lot of fire roads at the end. Recommended.
