Blue trail, 12km, easy to moderate loop walk.

First part of the trail is no longer a forest path. Instead, you'll be walking over the wind farm access roads for the first 4 kilometers.
Keep following these until you reach the bridge at the source of the river Blackwater. (there are no trail markings here)
Once across the bridge, take the first right to leave the wind farm road and follow the blue markers downhill over a forestry track.
Look out for a sign telling you to go right, off the forestry track, straight into the forest.
This bit can be challenging in rainy weather as the path is overgrown and the ground can get very marshy.
Go left at the first abandoned cottage.
After a while you'll get back on the forestry path, follow it down to the asphalt road, cross the Doctor's Hill bridge, and leave the main road again to your right after about two hundred after the bridge.
Probably a nice walk in good weather, interesting enough in bad weather once you are past the wind farm bit.
Views can be nice, but often there will be either windmills or deforestation in your field of view.
The shorter green walk will only lead you through the forests and fields and keeps you away from the plant a bit more.
