Description
Waypoints (0)

Starting north of Monee crossroads, proceed up the grass track at the forest barrier where the Duhallow way-marker indicates a turn into the woods. The track gradually rises upward, passing under the power lines overhead. Ignore the path to the right under the power lines and continue as the way-marker indicates, straight ahead, until you come to a T junction. Looking left, there is a grass mound, with a large, green farm building behind it. Follow the way-marker left until you come to the next marker, which is opposite a metal farm-gate. Leave the way-marked route at this point, and turn right. After walking approximately one tenth of a mile, ignore the grass track to the right and continue on along the forest path with green fields in the distance. Roughly another tenth of a mile on, the track swings round to the left. Don't follow the natural bend of the track, instead taking the other track straight ahead, keeping the same green fields in sight in front of you. This track will eventually swing around to the left and, at the next T junction, turn left. Within a tenth of a mile, you will come to another T junction and, here, you will take the right turn. This track finally emerges out of the woods at a forest barrier across the road from a farm house. Look left here and you will see a gate and stile, with a way-marker pointing across the stile. Follow these way-markers to return to your car.

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

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.
