A-B. Starting from the mapboard in the car park follow the purple (and green) arrow along the forestry road back towards the exit. The green arrows are for the shorter Dunboy Woods Loop. After 200m you reach a Y-junction where the Dunboy Woods Loop veers left - but you veer right staying on the forestry road. Continue to follow the purple arrows to reach the exit from the woods where you turn left.

B-C. Now the loop follows a minor roadway for almost 1km to reach a cluster of farmhouses. Enter via the stile/gateway and join an old green laneway which starts to descend toward Pipers Point. At the end of the descent you cross a stile and enter woodland.

C-A. Continue to follow purple arrows along a woodland track along the edge of Bullig Bay. Enjoy the views of the bay and Bear Island on your right. After 1km you reach a 3-way junction where you rejoin the Dunboy Woods Loop and turn right. Enjoy the last 500m back to the trailhead.
