|Type of Route||Grading||Estimated Time||Distance||Arrows||Total Climb|
|Loop Walk||Moderate||30 - 60 min||1.8 - 2.5 Km||Blue||70 m|
A lovely loop walk around the east side of Goleen Harbour with views of the village, the outer pier and out to the Fastnet Rock, the islands and towards Crookhaven. The trail follows blue arrows from the village before turning into Goleen Harbour Farm at the head of the inner harbour and then off-road. The walk travels over rugged heather strewn sea cliffs and across a wetland boardwalk. After which you can take the short 1.8km loopback, left along the farm road or go further, through a field and over the stile into the emerging Native Woodland/Nature Reserve. The trail then returns to Goleen along the same farm road. This walk has been graded moderate due to the uneven rocky surface in places.
