This walk follows forest roads around the woods, passing close to Lough Seecon on the western side of the forest, climbing gradually to the northern end and returning on public road. From the public road section there are spectacular views over Lough Corrib to the east and towards Cong to the north. Sections of the loop are quite exposed in bad weather and mobile phone coverage may be poor.

Fun trail. Not much of a view. There is a nice little lake about a mile into the hike, then when you come to the intersection with the Western Way, there is a great view into County Mayo over Lough Corrib. Worth doing to knock out a quick walk.
