This linear walk, which is noted for its wildflower displays, runs on path through woodland adjacent to a stream and marsh down to the natural sedimentary lagoon of Kilkeran Lake and the sand dunes overlooking Rosscarbery Bay. The lake is linked to the sea by a narrow channel, its brackish waters hosting a variety of aquatic vegetation.
