Colligan Woods next up in Walk Waterford Series

We hosted the second walk in the Walk Waterford Autumn Series on Sunday 18th October along the beautiful Dungarvan Railway Track. On a dry clear day eighteen adults and children enjoyed the 4.5km walk led by Peter Jones and Suzanne Baumann from WSP.
Participants were treated to stunning views along the Dungarvan coastline. Aoife Phelan, who travelled from Waterford City with her husband Michael and their daughter for the walk said 'We were absolutely delighted with the walk, it was great and Peter and Suzanne accommodated both the quick and the slow walkers'. Mary Moi said 'the walk was excellent as usual, very well organised and I think I will do it again tomorrow.'

We will host the third walk in the series next Sunday 25th October, in Colligan Wood, near Dungarvan. The meeting point is the Colligan Wood Car Park at 2pm. This beautiful Coillte forest is at the foothills of the Comeragh Mountains, the wood boasts a variety of walks and a beautiful 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 2km along  this road. We look forward to seeing you there.
