Ballymacsimon Loop is a 4.9 mile loop trail located near the city of Rathcormack. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking and walking.
To reach your starting point, approach Ballyvolane from the Bridesbridge direction. Cross Ballyvolane Bridge and continue for a further half-mile up the gently rising hill until you come to a T junction. Turn right, following the sign directing you to Britway (half a mile). At Britway school, take the left fork and continue for another tenth of a mile. You will come to St Bridget's Holy Well on the right. Park near the Holy Well and, on foot, proceed up the road to Britway cemetery. Turn left at the cemetery. Take the next left turn and follow the road as it gradually rises. Follow this road (via Ballymacsimon) for 2.5 miles and, at the T junction, turn left past Ballyvolane Wood. Ignore the next right turn to Ballyvolane House, continuing along your present path. Pass the school, proceeding along the road and returning to the Holy Well and your starting point.
