This trail follows forest road and path through a wide variety of native and exotic trees and shrubs in this wood between the villages of Cong and Clonbur, passing near a cave/sink and under two county roads. A large proportion of the wood is a Special Area of Conservation and, because of its conservation value, circa 293ha has been designated a priority woodland and a restoration life nature project is ongoing to remove exotic species. Signage along the route explains the restoration work undertaken.
