Walk Waterford Spring Series Next Walk in Colligan Woods

Waterford Sports Partnership (WSP) held the third walk in the Walk Waterford Spring Series last Sunday 23rd February on the newly developed Anne Valley Walk in Dunhill. Despite the very wet and windy conditions thirteen brave participants attended the walk.

This is a lovely flat 4km walk which follows the Anne Valley River which flows through the Anne Valley and meanders past many beautiful ponds to reach Dunhill Castle 2km from the starting point. After reaching the half way point some of the participants were keen to see what else Dunhill had to offer and continued their walk all the way to Annestown Beach.

Waterford Sports Partnership hosts its fourth walk on Sunday 2nd March, in Colligan Wood, near Dungarvan. The meeting point is the Colligan Wood car park at 10am. This beautiful Coillte forest is at the foothills of the Comeragh Mountains near Dungarvan.  These woods boast a variety of walks and also an ideal picnic spot by the Colligan River.  There are three options of walking trails here.  There is a short flat stretch along the river bank which is guaranteed to leave even the most stressed feeling a bit more relaxed and refreshed.  There is also the choice of two marked National Looped Trails - the Inchadrisla Loop of 3.5km (1hr 15 mins) and the more challenging Geenane Loop of 6km (1hr 45 mins).
Walkers will need suitable walking shoes (runners are ideal), warm clothing and a waterproof jacket. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

To get to the meeting point, Colligan Wood car park, take the N72 to Dungarvan take the Killrush roundabout (Campus garage) towards Cappoquin.   Just past the Pike petrol station at the Master McGrath monument take a right onto the Clonmel  Road R672, travel 4km from this point and take the first exit right signposted for Kilbrien/Colligan  Wood, the car park is on the left a further 1-2km along  this road. We look forward to seeing you there.
