Walkers will be able to easily complete this route in about three hours. The walking terrain on this route is largely comprised of grassy track. Walkers can look forward to a relaxing walk by the riverside on this trail. The landscape surrounding this walking trail mostly consists of forest, farmland and small dams called weirs. Bahana Wood and the Scar are two forests that walkers will see on this route. At Graiguenamanagh, walkers can view a bridge dating back to the 1760ís. This bridge was built to replace a 15th century stone bridge. The thirteenth century Abbey of Duiske is a well known attraction in Graiguenamanagh. Walkers will find Tinnahinch Castle located beside the lock to also be an interesting place to visit.
