Monicknew - Riverside Walk

Monicknew is about 11.5 km south of Clonaslee on the road (scenic route over Slieve Blooms) to Mountrath via The Cut. There are several loop walks from the Trailhead here and Monicknew is also on of the Slieve Bloom Way. The woodlands are situated in a valley and the site is crossed by the Glen River. This short 1.5km loop descends from the car park to the river bank and crosses under the Glen bridge. The walk is suitable for small children under supervision. There is a nice grassy area to relax down at the river, a favourite with kids during Summer!
