The Offaly Way is a linear route of some 38km linking the Slieve Bloom Way (at Cadamstown) to the Sli Mor (at Lemanaghan). En route, the route crosses the Grand Canal Way. It includes sections of riverbank, stretches of bogland, green mass paths and quiet country roadways. Although the highest point is only 120m, much of the Way commands wide views over a comparatively flat landscape. It follows a mix of forest track, riverbank, bog roadway and minor road. As the route is mainly flat, it is easy to moderate in difficulty and suitable for people of average levels of fitness or higher. A number of shorter looped walks start and finish at each of the trailheads and are more suitable for the occasional walker.
