Route Description

The Aughnagurgan Trail is one of two trails within Darkely Forest. This is a moderate walk taking approximately 40 minutes to complete.

This trail initially follows the same route as the Mountain Lodge Trail before leading walkers into the heart of the woodland past the ruins of the original Mountain Lodge and on to a beautiful picnic spot surrounded by beech trees. Two short cuts lead back to the car park.

Finding your way about:
Follow the Aughnagurgan trail waymarker discs on the wooden posts located throughout the forest.
