This walk is on path, forest road and road in a remote, quiet and peaceful place. It goes along the river through mature coniferous woodland, passing the Clamp Hole, the largest waterfall on the river, and returns over the Ridge of Capard, passing the Metal Man. There are 10 numbered stops with the related information on environment and cultural history available to download. From the Ridge the views of the surrounding countryside are extensive. The terrain can be rough in parts and sometimes wet underfoot.

Daniel from Kildare

An excellent trail, very well signposted. Great variation on walk from river to woods to hills.
