This loop is mainly on singletrack narrow trails and is suitable for those looking for a longer walk. It begins along a two-way section of trail and covers much of the Park. There are good views along the lakeshore near Rinmaher Point south towards Terryglass and east towards Portumna Bridge. Signal signs provide information about local features of fauna and flora, including red squirrel and fallow deer

Lovely trail but badly marked. Hard to find trail head and some junctions hard to know what way to go
