Townee Wood Walk is a 3 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Oughterard, that features a lake. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking, walking, birding, and scenic driving.
This road is the Scenic Route or the High Road and will give you spectacular panoramic views of Lough Corrib. This walk begins over the small bridge on the church side of town, as well. Instead of going along the river, continue along the road as you turn right off the bridge. This road is the Scenic Route or the High Road. Near the summit of the hill you will see a turn in left into the forestry. This path will take you in a loop off the road and come out further up the Scenic road. There is a small loop or a larger loop you may do. The larger loop is about 3 miles and the Scenic Route Road is about 3 miles before it joins up with the Glann or Lake Road.
A great, easy walk with a pretty view! It's hiking on a road, so be careful of cars, but hike as far as you want! We went a bit farther so we could actually get to the edge of Lough Corrib.
