This is a variation on track #3938, so I will avoid repeating the comments made there, with which I fully agree. This is an easy hike with great views. In order to stretch the hike a little bit, we returned by the "red route" - the Bann River Trail. This brings an additional aspect to the great views, and much of it is on a rougher surface, in contrast to the hard surface on most of the "blue route" (Croghan Trail) on our upward journey. Returnign by the red route, we passed the location of the original Forde's farm homestead. There is a useful map of the three way-marked trails at Raheenleagh Wood at https://lovegorey.ie/fitness_wellbeing/croghan-cluster-walking-trails/ . Beside the trailhead at White Heaps is a monument marking the campsite of the Wexford Army in June-July 1798 where the remaining insurgents were camped after the Battle of Vinegar Hill.
