Glenafelly EcoWalk

Looped walk | 7.21 km | Co. Offaly | Moderate walk

Trail Description

Situated a few Kms south-east of Kinnity, Co. Offaly. The Glenafelly Eco Walk is situated up a narrow forest road, signposted "The Slieve Bloom Mountains". A 'cul de sac' signposted "Old Munster Road" is about half way up this road. Do not take the Cul De Sac. Continue straight to the Glenafelly Recreation Area car park. The trail goes immediately by the side of the Glenafelly river and on up to the end of the valley. The trail comprises forest roads and hiking trail alongside the river (approx 500m distance), and a 100m (distance) short climb through mature conifers. The remainder of the looped walk is on hard gravel forest road, with the final 300m through gravel hiking trail surrounded by conifers. The walk can be done in comfortable trainers or light hiking boots, and takes 1hr 40mins at a constant walking pace. There are wild foxes and deer present throughout the forest - if you are quiet you are likely to encounter a deer or two.
