Green Trail – Cornasaus Loop

Starting Point:   Picnic Area (Mohercrum). GREEN Waymark Signs.

 There is a fairy fort to the right of the mass rock with lovely views at the picnic area .  

To access this walking trail, turn right and follow the Green Waymark signs at the picnic area. After 120 metres continue straight through to enter the Greenbelt Forest entrance at the steel barrier.  Continue for 150 meters approx. and keep on the main trail path to your left and follow the green waymark signs until you reach the main road on the west side of Loughanleagh mountain.  This trail offers beautiful panoramic views on its western flank towards Bailieborough and West Cavan. The Cornasaus Cairn (one of the 3 prehistoric cairns across Loughanleagh’s summit) is situated on the eastern perimeter of this forest belt. Presently, this is not easily accessible but we are hoping to develop an access point to this cairn in the near future.   

After rejoining the main road, turn left and continue on your return path to your starting point at the picnic area.  This trail has been developed with the kind permission and co-operation of Greenbelt Ltd.

The map outlines the walkway for you.
