This walk follows forest roads climbing gradually to the northern end of the forest and returning on public road. From the public road section there are spectacular views over Lough Corrib to the east and towards Cong to the north. Sections of the loop are quite exposed in bad weather and mobile phone coverage may be poor.
The New Village loop walks provide additional loops off the Western Way, and will enhance the walking opportunities in the Oughterard area.
