Description
Waypoints (0)

This trail provides spectacular views of Glenariife and the surrounding area. This stunning walk starts by dropping down into the valley with waterfalls on the way then climbs the other side to open views of the coast, before then curving back over the head of the valley over a little bridge back to the car park. Reasonable fitness is needed as it is hilly in places, especially some steep bits at the start, but well worth the effort. The trails are well maintained.

WalkingGreat!

I done this on the 10th of April, I took the black trail which is the longest one, but other shorter trails are available, lovely waterfall, great place for walking /hiking, it took roughly 2 hours but just depends on your walking abilities, may take you longer,

Amazing hike, go easy after crossing the river as it's steep! But great views and a great hike!

Great trail and views are amazing. Though the path ways especially on the way down were very icy. The waterfalls are a must!

Easy to medium going. Some gradients, but fairly manageable. Good walking boots a must.

Excellent trail for developing into an intermediate. Gravel paths, well signposted, amazing views. You don’t notice the length of elevation. Highly recommend.

Made the stop last minute and was not dressed the best for the trail. It is beautiful but hiking boots or trail shoes are a good idea.
