Welcome To LeitrimExperience.ie..
All of Coillte’s forests in Leitrim and across the country are open to the public for walking. Coillte has an open forest policy and welcomes all walkers to visit according to the leave no trace principles, writes Martin Branagan.
This woodland is situated in an area that was formerly part of the Derrycarne Demense. The lands were owned by the Nesbitt family in the early 1800s. They were subsequently acquired by Edward Willis and William Ormsby Gore MP.
The woodland provides a very pleasant walk along the shore of Lough Boderg. Cruisers have access to this lake through the Shannon water system. The remains of an ice house can be seen along the shore.
The trail passes through mixed wood land of beech, oak, and holly together with Sitka spruce and Lawson cypress.
