Beautiful Wooded Hill
by shaneanddearbh  27 Jul 2014
Knonkmaa Woods is a beautiful walk, about 4km long and takes about 1 hour at a casual pace. Fantastic views to the west of the Corrib and Connemara, Mayo to the North with the peak of Croagh Patrick visible on a good day. To the east there is a great view across North Galway. The road and path is well maintained and is accessible to all. The Cairn at the top is easily missed however. Near a ruin named 'Daithi's Leaba' (Davids Bed) there is a wall on top of a ridge. There is a gap in the wall and a path, this will lead you to the summit and to a great panorama. Fantastic Sunday walk for all. Highly recommend.
