A scenic loop outside of Oughterard with nice views of Lough Seecon. There are two loops in this area. One reaches further out for a view of Lough Seecon. The smaller loop cuts off a mile of hiking by cutting around before the lake. Easy hike for nice views.

A nice view of the lake and a good short, easy hike in the gateway to Connemara. To get to the trailhead, I recommend taking the Townee Wood Walk.
