March ‘Go Wild’ Hike At Glenbarrow Eco Trail

12th March @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm


Join us for the Glenbarrow Eco Trail 8.5km hike. See the luscious landscape of Co. Laois. Together we’ll set sail hiking from the meeting point of Glenbarrow Carpark and do the orange loop trail of 8.5km alongside the riverbank of the River Barrow, see a spectacular 3 tiered waterfall and enjoy the natural woodland that in spring is ablaze with bluebells. Hiking footwear and wind/rainproof clothing is essential. We recommend bringing a spare change of clothes and footwear.
