A-B. From the trailhead, enter Bord na Móna property and follow the purple arrows along the sandy roadway for approx 2km to reach a crossroads. This is the point from where the loop ‘proper’ begins. You will be returning to here from the right later - for now turn left.

B-C. Continue to follow the purple arrows as the loop takes you along a sandy roadway (which used to be a railway line for turf cutting) - watch for the old power station and the Oweniny River on your left. After 5km you turn right at a ‘crossroads’ in the direction of a windfarm. After nearly 1km the roadway rounds a sharp right bend and, after 100m, a left bend. Here you proceed straight joining a grassy roadway.

C-B-A. Follow this grassy roadway for almost 2km (the wind turbines on your left and ahead of you)to reach a ‘crossroads’ with a sandy roadway. Continue straight ahead - following a grassy roadway.Continue along this roadway (with wind turbines on your right, and forestry on your left) for over 1km to regain the crossroads mentioned at B above. This time veer left and enjoy the trek back to the trailhead!
