This hiking trail up over Gleninagh Mountain serves up a great example of the typical Burren limestone Karst, following traditional old and now disused green lane-ways. Elevated mountain paths form the initial part of the Blackhead Looped Hiking Trail taking in striking views of Fanore Beach and Gleninagh Mountain. It also features some towering and wonderful views of Galway Bay, the north Connemara shoreline and the Aran Islands and is also rich in the innumerable Burren wild flowers that scatter this unique environment.
