Waterford Sports Partnership (WSP) held the first walk of the Walk Waterford Autumn Series on Sunday 18th September along the beautiful Dungarvan Railway Track.
On a wet and windy day, participants enjoyed the 4.5km walk led by Pauline Cunningham from WSP. Although weather conditions were not great participants were still able to take advantage of the stunning views along the Dungarvan coastline.
Waterford Sports Partnership hosts its second walk on Sunday 25th September in Colligan Wood, near Dungarvan. The meeting point is the Colligan Wood carpark at 2pm. This beautiful Coillte forest is at the foothills of the Comeragh Mountains near Dungarvan. These woods boast a variety of walks and also an ideal 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.
