This trail circles northwards in an anticlockwise direction on forest track and path, narrow in places and with some uneven surfaces, loose stones and features such as protruding roots, dips and hollows. It has a generally low gradient and goes through mature broadleaf and conifer forest, passing Glenisca Lake, an old cave and impressive cliff walls as well as an old Yew woodland.
