From the square in the centre of the village, follow yellow Avondhu way-markers and the sign for Ballyporeen (15km). After 1km, turn left into Glensheskin Wood and walk over the bridge into the carpark.

At the end of the carpark, turn right and follow the climbing, meandering track, which has lovely views over Glensheskin Wood.

At the end of this track, which is approximately 1km in length, there is a footbridge, which spans the river Douglas.

Having crossed the river, you will meet the main forest road. Turn left and return to the village via the car park.
