Gougane Barra Forest Park

I don't seem to get much time to blog lately, but I have been meaning to share a few photos of the Forest Park at Gougane Barra (please see last post), which is just around the corner from St. Finbarr's Church, down in West Cork.  

The park's about 1,000 acres and is great for walking or cycling, or you can take the car and drive along the loop road.

There's lots of paths and nature trails...

that lead through the forests and woodland.

The path leading down to a lake.

The stepping stones go all the way up to the top of the mountain. There's plenty of benches and picnic tables to stop for a rest (and there's loos too).

Trickling streams and waterfalls.

Lovely views when you get to the top.

Looking down to the car park below.

Thanks for dropping by. :)
