Beginning at the car park at the end of Mocollop Glen, 1.2 miles from Ballyduff, proceed up the Glen. The nearby Mocollop Castle, which gives its name to this area of the Blackwater Valley, is a source of much antiquity. The name 'Mocollop' comes from the Irish name 'Maghcolpa', which translates as 'Plain of the Cattle'. Walk up the beautiful Glen -with the stream on your left - through the woods. Follow this road, which meanders past a number of farms, until you reach a T junction. Turn right here and continue for a third of a mile, then take the right hand fork. This will bring you down a magnificent glen full of furze (and which follows the route of the Clounagad River) and into the village of Ballyduff. Turn right, back to the Mocollop parking area (1.2 miles), taking due care on this busy road.

We did a detour and managed to run through the forest. It is now one of my favorite running places, but we don't follow the exact route.

This walk is 90% on roads. The scenery in the area is beautiful but if you want a nice woodland or off road walk this is not for you
