Enjoy a full loop around the Durrow valley. The Leafy Loop around Durrow is a good 5.5 to 6.5 hour walk. it climbs to The Ballagh and will require good health and good boots. It's a glorious walk through forests, by rivers, up hills to oversee the valley, and down into the charming village of Durrow itself. The Leafy Loop is a longer version of the Dunmore Loop walk which follow the same route until a divergence just before Clonageera House on the other side of the village. You get to see many of the fine sights along the way then climb to see the magnificent valley. It's an extra 4+ miles, but if you're fit, it is well worth it. This walk is well signposted with a variety of posts along the way. Purple arrows indicate the signs for the Leafy Loop and have been placed with thought and care by people who are keen to keep you on the right path at all times.

A great place to run off-road if training for an endurance event with dodgy knees! Can be prone to flooding after heavy rain but when dry it's an amazing trail
