Cahermurphy Loop Walk
Time to head for the hills again and this time tackle the Cahermurphy Loop Walk. This takes you from the sandy shores of Lough Graney via the river banks of the Bleach River through East Clare forest and farmland via forest tracks and minor roads.
Distance is 10 km and will take you 2 – 3 hours to complete. The highest point on the loop is near Corlea Beg and has some steep inclines and declines before and after, as you come through the village of Flagmount and back to the trail head.
Parking is available at the trail head as well as a small picnic area, though as the weather on our visit was drizzling, we didn’t hang around.
