Shortly after leaving your starting point, you will come to a fork in the road. Keep right here and continue on through the next... more » crossroads. At the next fork, keep left and follow the rising road into the Knockmealdown Mountains.
Follow this road until you reach a series of S bends, traversing several small bridges spanning the streams running down from the mountains.
Continue on this road as it rises up toward the forests.
A short distance from the S bends, you will notice a way-marker on your left. Following the direction it highlights, climb over the stile and continue along the path it, and further way-markers, sets out across the mountain. You will come to a mountain track which eventually becomes a road along the base of the Knockmealdowns.
Proceed along this road, enjoying some beautiful views south over the valleys.
When you reach a T junction, turn left and follow the road down past the signpost and bungalow to your car.
