The site is situated in the picturesque Glencar Valley where you can enjoy several marked walking routes. At the highest point you will get a fabulous view up the Caragh river to Caragh Lake. Book a stay in one of our holiday homes on Caragh Lake.
The Lickeen Forest Walks include three looped waymarked trails to help you explore the wood:
Castle Rock Loop (2.0km, 1 hour, strenuous, green) will guide you through the forest, climbing to about 90m before you descend into an atmospheric ravine before continuing back on forest roads to the trailhead.
Lickeen Loop (2.2km 1 hour, moderate, blue) takes in the landmark of Blackstones Bridge before leading you along a trail adjacent to the Caragh River before looping back via the Wood.
The Kerry LIFE Loop (3.1km, 1½ hours, strenuous, purple) is the wider loop that incorporates the best bits of the above.
