Slieve Foye loop
PLEASE NOTE that due to forestry operations taking place in Slieve Foye Woods, this trail will be diverted in this area until 31-05-23. Please follow the diversion signage in place.
This loop follows red blue arrows on tarmac and forestry roads, grassy track and mountain paths with one rough section which can be boggy and wet in places. There are some ascents and a descent with the initial ascent very steep while the others are more gradual. The loop goes through forest, with a section along forest edge and some open mountain. The views are stunning, along the coast to the north and south, across Carlingford Lough to the Mourne Mountains while in good conditions the Isle of Man is visible.

Well worth a visit, even for families.

The day couldn't have been rounded off better.
Carlingford itself was alive with visitors, with amusements by the tourist office car park. It was my first time there. A lovely place.
