This is a well marked trail, it was easy to follow the purple arrows. Great scenery

This is a fantastic and beautiful loop for anyone who wants to get back into trail running after a break, or anyone who is new to running. It is fairly easy with only one short uphill bit. Beautiful views, lush forest. It's 2.2km, so we did it 5 times and it never got boring. :)

One of Irelands finest

a nice trail which starts out with a gradual 1km incline but then settles into a very easy circuit. poorly signposted and twice missed my turn whilst hiking but the app was used to get me back on track. the circuit shown on the app is misleading in distance. From the starting gate, up one circuit and back to gate is 7.67km as verified on GPS. the app suggests 20+km but the trail shown in red on map is not the full trail. Happy hiking

Great route. Did it anti clockwise. Very pleasant, some moderate uphill in the first 3km, but a good pair of shoes will have you sorted. Great views. Clocked on GPS and distance came in at 11.33km, at a good paced walk (5.8km / hour) brought me around in a total of 1 hour 57 minutes. Would highly recommend, note there is little or no cover from the elements

Nice easy walk by the river with beautiful views. But a road with traffic runs a couple of hundred yards on your other side, so if you're looking for wilderness this isn't your thing.

Very easy walk, not really a hike as most of the terrain is on the flat, nevertheless very enjoyable. Good for mountain biking with young teenagers or for trail run. Most of the path is covered for both sides by trees and vegetation, overall a very nice two hours outdoors.

good walk . instead of turning of to the red trail I go right up the hill to the top . a good hike up .

good walk, alot is uphill at the start, mainly on logging Road for majority of the walk.

Lovely walk, dog loves it

Sheeps head has to be one of the most beautiful walks I've ever done! The loop back around to the car park is tough if you're not prepared. Make sure to have water and food if necessary as we got caught out there with nothing not realising how long that route would take but nonetheless it is an amazing cliffside walk.

nice loop. once you hit the first plateau after the initial climb through forestry go left if you have a novice or a child. If you go right it's a steep 2k climb to the top and a 9 k walk all the way back
