A-B. Starting from the car park follow the purple (and red) arrow northward along the laneway. The red arrows are for the longer trek to the top of Keeper Hill. After almost 2km the loop reaches a crossroads – turn right here and after 100m enter Ballyhourigan Woods via the metal barrier.
B-C. Ascend along the forestry roadway in the direction of Keeper Hill. After 3km the loop and trek separate at a 3-way junction. Here you have the choice of turning left and following the red arrows to the top of Keeper Hill – the return journey will take you 1hr-1hr30mins. The main loop turns right, following the purple arrow.
C-A. Continue to follow the purple arrows along the forestry roadway. Note that you are also following yellow arrows which are for the long-distance Slieve Felim Way. The loop sweeps south and descends to the townland of Boolatin – passing en-route a stone sweat house. After 4km you regain the trailhead.
Directions to Trailhead
From the village of Toor, follow the road (unclassified) in the direction of Newport. After 2km turn right onto a minor roadway and follow the Trailhead signs to reach the trailhead at Doonane.
