Quality Walk

Clare Glen

Clare Glen can be described as a delightful walk along the banks of the River Cusher in County Armagh. Many of the trees in the wood are multistemmed and the wood may have been managed by coppicing in the past. Hazel is abundant, with oak, ash and wych elm over a stunning ground layer of wood anemone, wild garlic and bluebells, and several different species of orchid (when in season).

We visited yesterday on a (finally) dry sunny day. The river was fast flowing and very dramatic to see, the pathways were clear considering the amount of rain we have had and the alternate routes around the river make it a good walk. Great woods and will definately revisit in the snow, spring and summer too. Good for picnics too.

Beautiful woodland walk by the banks of the river. The population of Early Purple Orchids at the N end need protection from bikes.

Absolutely beautiful.

As a child, my uncle would take my brother and myself for wonderful long walks.

I hold great memories of the Clare Glen.

I reside in Canada now, but would dearly love to see the Clare Glen again.
