Located just over 5 kilometres from Roundwood village, the Ballinastoe Slí na Sláinte is a 5km, looped route.
From the car park and picnic area, the route continues uphill along forestry tracks. The forest consists mainly of mixed conifers on the slopes of Djouce Mountain and provides a habitat for fox, badger, red squirrel and sika deer. Many species of birds, including grouse can also be seen. The clear felled areas have opened up stunning views of the Sugarloaf Mountain to the north and the Vartry valley and reservoir to the south.
A 16km mountain biking trail is also available in the area. - More information is at www.coillte.ie/site/ballinastoe/
