This is a lovely route for a walk with kids, with a good mix of woodlands and lakeside walking. The trail is not crowded and also great for dogs. Be sure to check out the historic Russborough House at the end!

I often walk on this greenway . My dog loves it too . You can start at the Avon but parking is now €2 . From here you can walk to Russborough on tracks and when you get to know it deviate off around the smaller trails to the lake edge . Sometimes I park opposite Russborough by the lakeside and go the other way , so about 10 k round trip . Some exercise machines on the route also . A small section on the main N81 but with a good path and the valley mount rd has to be crossed too . Good for bikes too . Plans to make it longer are afoot !
