Mostly on path and minor road, this is the longest, most difficult and most exciting of the trails in the park, passing through trees, criss-crossing the infant River Lee and going onto open mountain. Views are of Maolach, the craggy slopes of Carraigīn an Phreacháin and the old Mass path from the Borlin Valley to St. Finbarr’s Oratory on the lake island.
