The forest part is a beautiful enchanting place surrounding its entrants in a canopy of leaves. The climb to the top of the rock is slightly steep but well worth it.

Beautiful walk just outside of Sligo. An enjoyable hike. Not strenuous at all just watch your footing on the roots and rocks. Overlooking the lake and mountains in the background, very enjoyable.
