This woodland track can be accessed directly from N11 heading South. After Exit 9, there is a road sign for Glen o' the Downs, and then a brown sign for parking 500 m ahead. This is the entrance, but slow down well before the entrance to avoid being rear-ended; the entrance doesn't reveal itself until the last moment. There is an alternative entrance from Ballydonagh Lane at O 262 123, accessed from Exit 9 on N11.
The track offers an excellent view of the Sugarloaf at the Ballydonagh Lane entrance. It also offers an excellent view of Glen o' the Downs from the ruins of the panoramic dining room of the La Touche family residence at O 262 115.
