The walk is 6 miles long and should take about 1 hour 30 minutes for an average walker. There is somewhat of a climb at the start, but nothing a regular walker would consider difficult. The loop starts at St. Paul’s, walking toward the Vee on the road past the School to the top of the hill. Here it turns right onto the forestry path. The trail follows the forest roadway across the top of Clogheen village, offering excellent views of the town (see picture) that many will not have seen before. It then drops down onto what is known locally as Heathfield, part of the Shanrahan loop walk, making its way by road back to St. Paul’s Community Centre.
Bring runners or good walking shoes/boots, rain gear, something to drink and a fully charged mobile phone.
