Well marked, lovely scenery on the route, but sections along by the river are dangerous as they are little more than a sheep trail right on the bank, very slippy in several areas. I would not recommend this route if there was rain in the preceding days

I walked this trail from Inistioge to Thomastown on the 6th August 2019. It is a wonderful way to spend a morning or afternoon taking in the beautiful sights of the Nore Valley.

I started my walk at Woodstock, Inistioge which is a lovely 1.5km downhill stroll.

The trail is well signposted with a mix of riverbank, forest and road.

From Woodstock to the BlackBerry cafe in Thomastown was 13.5km.
