This easy 6.4km looped walk takes you on minor roads and bog roads.

A-B. From the mapboard follow the green (and purple) arrows back to the road where you turn left. The purple arrows are for the longer Lake O’Flynn Bog Loop). Continue along the road for 400m to reach a stone bridge which crosses the River Suck - turn right here onto a bog road.

B-C. Follow the bog road for almost 1km to reach a crossroads where the Lake O’Flynn Bog Loop turns left - but you proceed straight on. Now follow the green arrows along a bog road for another 500m to reach a surfaced roadway where you turn right and rejoin the Lake O’Flynn Loop.

C-A. The surfaced road takes you back to the main road where you turn right - it’s only 300m back to the trailhead.
