Very enjoyable hike and a treasure of a park, less than an hour away from Dublin. Some trails are better marked than others, but manageable terrain either way. If you use the coordinates that AllTrails offers to find the park, it will bring you to the entrance, where I began my hike. If you keep going on the road slightly right of here though, it will bring you to the other car park (which I realized well into my hike). This brings you closer to the river and cliff trails. From the cliff trail, you can easily access the other trails that meander through the interior of the park. Great variety of both scenery and sounds on this hike. Highly recommend!
To note: I had to stop the recording of my hike a bit early as my phone was low on battery, but as you’ll see from the map, it was fairly easy to loop back to where I began.
Enjoy!

This is a lovely, easy trail which leads to a picturesque waterfall amidst the Comeragh Mountains. Upon arriving to the falls, you can scramble your way up the rocks and steep hillsides to the top of the falls and enjoy gorgeous views of the surrounding landscape.

lovely walk especially in the summer

A challenging hike. Don't underrate it.

Lovely trail with diverse views of landscapes including Powers Court Waterfall, the Sugarloaf and some other hills and valleys. Clockwise is easier. Counter clockwise for those who want to work up a sweat.

Perfect moderate trail that includes the famous cardiac steps at the start abs opens up to a lovely view of the lakes. Also includes a forest trail.

Excellent hike. Not too strenuous.

We ended up only having time to hike out to the point and back from the side of the road. It was breathtaking.

Super

Great photo opportunities along the river bank. Enjoyable walk.

where are they getting 17klms for this walk? it's only 6.5 klms. Very bad error!

Short trail but the waterfall is beautiful!

This trail passes through a Artillery range, DO Not pick up, disturb anything on the ground, report it to the Military range office at trailhead.

3hr walk with kids. Mountain side overlooking a ‘bowl’ style valley containing one of the country’s most popular attractions. While Crone overlooks this vista, the forest insulates the walker - offering tantalizing glimpses through forest cuts - until the view is revealed spectacularly after about 25 mins. Mixed deciduous and evergreen forest, generally mossy with pine needle covered undergrowth. The climb continues to a zig-zag mountain walk as forest drops away. Cutting across beneath the summit of Maulin along the top edge of Crone forest, there is protection from any possible colder weather and wind for the return to the car park through the forest. The zig-zag return can be shortened by following the more direct and rugged downhill paths that cut straight through the forest. While an exertion at some parts, young family members were more than capable. Coillte forest roadways are in good condition. Arguably (although not necessarily advised as it’s a couple of hours uphill) passable by large wheeled buggy with only a handful of points where it would need to be briefly carried across obstacles (on a revisit, realized 25 min duration climb to highest point of walk is very steep and quite rocky so not suitable for buggy really). Will break sweat during uphill of first half of the walk. Plenty of attractive points to stop and take a break. Recommended as a longer family walk (over 7 km). https://www.coillte.ie/site/crone-woods/

You can extend walk by 2-3km by continuing to the end of the straight stretch of road - some of what remains of the Galway to Clifden railway route.

Great hike. Close to four hours to finish. Moderate to difficult

Easy trail with spectacular views! Lots of sheep poo too

Part of the walk - through a field - is now inaccessible, and another along a busy enough road.

I did the blue walking loop , fairly easy small up and down but nice stroll through the woodlands

It isn't really a trail - it was a walk down an asphalt road with no sidewalk or shoulder. Speed limit is 50 mph on parts and 35 on some. It wasnt that safe considering the road is a typical Ireland road where 2 cars can barely pass each other. There is one part off the road where you walk a trail through a meadow to a castle and that part was pretty.
Oh and there is no loop. It is in and back unless you walk through private property.

Loved this hike, hard for some like me but not difficult. Defo want to do it again.

excellent hike. stunning views. clear enough paths to follow, but can be steep at parts. would suggest some / good level of fitness. So worth it.

Loved the hike! The scrambling up the rocks are not too extreme although you should be in decent shape/athletic. The day started off clear with blue skies and it was beautiful. At the peak the clouds had rolled in. We hiked up the scramble rocks, made it to the peak, and on the decent we walked down a little ways, walked along the ridge (pretty narrow) and down the switchback. I recommend this as your plan. Great beautiful hike!!
