This trail is a loop with two shorter alternatives. It is on path and forest track through a great variety of trees, many of which are not native and were planted approximately 250 years ago. The walk goes out along the lakeshore and returns inland, with views of Wolf and Bernard’s Islands close by while across Lough Gill Church, Goat and Cottage Islands and Dooney Rock can be seen.

Nice, easy-going forest walk that brings you through a forest and lake-side setting with great views out over the lake. You'll come across some very interesting trees that Coillte have taken the time to highlight and explain with wooden signage. Some information is displayed regarding the history and the landscape of the lake too.
