Nice walks, lovely scenery, water falls, established paths and all complimented with the practicality of a decent car park with simple facilities. You could spend an awful lot of time in this area and get nothing but satisfaction from doing so. A must do day.

Great trail! I loved this walking trail in Ballyhoura, definitely right up my alley as I am a very outdoorsy person! It was lovely to immerse myself outdoors for the day as the weekend was sunny and the environment was like no other! Definitely recommend!
