This trail follows forest road and path through mixed forest passing a holy well, the site of a hedge school, a mass rock and a mast as well as close to an oak wood on what was a Camp Field used by United Irish insurgents in 1798. Breath-taking views are of the neighbouring countryside, Mount Leinster, the Blackstairs Mountains and the coast in the direction of Hook Head.
