There are several special areas of conservation in Curragh Chase Forest Park and Coillte is currently involved in restoring native woodlands to important sites in the park. There are a number of looped way marked trails in the park to suit all visitors, varying from the multi-access trails suitable for wheelchair users and family walkers to the longer trails suitable for those looking for more demanding walking and cycling.
The Curragh Trail is a multi-use walking and cycling trail to suit occasional walkers and cyclists. The trail starts and finishes at the Car Park and is a distance of 2.4km.
The Arboretum Trail offers an opportunity to stroll through the old arboretum of Curragh Chase and see the many trees that grow in the south west of the country. The 1.1km trail can be walked in about 20 minutes but allow 40 minutes to an hour to read about and admire these beautiful trees.
The Glenisca Trail is a multi-use walking and cycling trail to suit occasional walkers and cyclists. The 3.6km trail leaves the Curragh Trail loop and brings you through mature broadleaf and conifer forest, passing an old cave and impressive limestone cliff walls.
The Lake Trail is a multi-access trail designed to give every visitor an opportunity to explore the sights, sounds and smells of nature up close. The 1.1km trail surface allows users of all abilities to access the park and features wide sections of smooth forest road and trail. Wheelchair users, kids on bikes with stabilisers and family groups on foot or bike can equally enjoy this loop.
