LOUGH MOHRA WALK – RATHGORMACK

About the Walk:

The Lough Mohra National Looped Walk is the longer of the two loops in Glenpatrick Woodsother being the ”Rathbeag” looped walk. The Lough Mohra Coum lies under the stunning and breathtaking Knockanaffrin Ridge. This coum is a marshy hollow created by glaciation. It’s really worthwhile spending some time in this serene place and enjoying the stunning views. On a clear day you will see the peak of the beautiful Slievenamon, the historic Kilcash on the eastern slopes of Slievenamon and Walsh Mountain in the gap between Slievenamon and the lower hills of Kilkenny. It’s truly spectacular.

Directions:

From the village of Rathgormack on the R678 (distance from Clonmel: 12 miles, Waterford: 25 miles, Carrick on Suir: 6 miles, Dungarvan: 18 miles), follow the R678 in the direction of Clonmel. After a 5km straight stretch, the road swings left and reaches a downhill roadway on your right. Shortly afterwards the road turns right at a 4-roadway junction – turn left onto the forestry roadway. Travel for 500m to reach the trailhead where you can park.
