Killbrannish Forest Recreation Area on the Blackstairs Mountains features two signposted trails – the Windfarm Loop is 3km in length with a good surface and uphill sections and is suitable for families with young children. The Kilbrannish Forest Loop is 5 kilometres in length taking approx. 2 hours to complete.
The route offers wonderful views of the surrounding countryside – walkers following the Kilbrannish Forest Loop will be rewarded with particularly fine views from the summit of Croaghaun (455 metres) northwards over the plains of Carlow with the villages and towns of Myshall and Tullow spread out below. A large car park and picnic facilities are available to visitors.
