This varied trail includes the lower slopes of the Knockmealdown Mountains and it drops through the green lanes and boreens of sparsely populated hill farms to the historic settlements and rich farms and woodlands of the Blackwater Valley.
It rises again on to the slopes of the Nagle Hills, where there are superb views over the Munster plains, then to Shrone, just north of the Paps Mountains, which offers a contrast of wild bog, mountain, forest roadways, glens, lakes, rivers and stretches of beautiful isolation.
The area abounds in wildlife and wild flowers when in their season.
