Coolmelagh Forest

Coolmelagh, also known as Prospect Loop, is a forest and walking trail that has beautiful views of Wexford to the south and Wicklow and Carlow to the North. Prospect Loop trail follows forest roads with a steady climb before it descends towards Ballingate and loops back with good views of the surrounding countryside of Carlow and Wicklow. The walk meanders through pine and beech forests up to the summit of Gibbet Hill. In the eighteenth century there was a slate quarry on the hill with remnants of that still in existence.  In early May expect to see a carpet of bluebells amongst beech trees.
