knocknarea is a great walk for individuals, groups or families. Great views on a clear day. The boardwalk path begins on the sligo to strandhill road at the rugby club and goes up to the cairn. Approx 50 min walk up. In June 2018 a new path was added. It starts on the path below the boardwalk and goes clockwise around the hill to join the old pass at the old car park on the SE side. Approx 90 min walk.

Very manageable trail, almost all groomed. Great views. Wide gravel path at the start becomes about 500 steps built of wooden beams as the trail gets steeper. Be aware that the steps are only about 20 inches wide and without a rail, so if you have vertigo, balance issues or fear of heights, this may not be for you.
