There is a new Knocknarea trail in the making. It is not finished yet and hasn't been opened to the public yet, but we decided to take a preview of this exciting new trail. Bold I hear you say, yes we were, but we always get excited when something new is there to be discovered. We shouldn't really call it new trail, because most of the path follows the old trails which used to exist in this part of the forest, but the new path makes them more accessible. Accessible, maybe not just yet as you will notice later from our pictures.
The views from the path are fabulous, and on a clear day will give you a birdseye view towards Sligo. On this particular day, we had the boys with us, one of them thinking it would be a great idea to venture of the path - which of course ended up in a free mudbath . Luckily we always bring some spare clothes in the car, and after a wash down , fresh clothes and some food he was all happy again.
