This is a nice scenic route in a mixed coniferous and deciduous wood with some nice views. There is just one spot that is a bit soggy. The start is best approached along the R759 from Manor Kilbride.

There is parking for a couple of cars at the forest entrance O04823 16605 and a few more around the corner nearer the bridge. Follow the forest track up to O05796 16919 where you continue straight on along a grassy track that has a raised ditch on the right-hand side.

At O05826 16558 you need to make your way east, using a compass bearing, carefully through the trees and some soft ground to point O05551 16522 which is another grassy track. Follow the forest track to point O05261 16945 where you take the narrow walking track, on the right-hand side, back down the eastern side of the river. There are beautiful views as you walk through this lovely deciduous wooded section.

This brings you back to the road and the bridge over the Shankill River. Just continue over the bridge back to the start of the walk.
