Park your car outside the school and take the sign post for Treanamanagh. This trail will take you through some beautiful scenery so bring a camera. There are some spectacular views of mountains and lakes. Keep an eye out for 4,000 year old beehive huts, famine walls, The mountain scenery here is beautiful, and the trail which takes in the "Glenbeigh Horse-shoe", is one of Kerry's finest mountain walks. A feature of the circuit is a number of magnificent glacial corries and lakes which lie at the head of the valley. Anglers can be seen trying to catch salmon in Caragh Lake, a beautiful expanse of water 4 miles (6km) long.

A really nice hike that is mixed between Road & Track. As a family we have done this dozens of times. Plenty of rest/picnic areas. Now it’s tough in parts but all in all a nice few hours out. Beautiful scenery of Dingle, Rossbeigh, Glenbeigh & Glencar. Aged 6plus for tired legs. Not a busy route either! Enjoy this
