  • Short but nice mix of riverside and more open country. A contrast to the Lough Navar trails which are very close by – easy to combine walks in the same visit

    Route Description

    A short nature trail starting opposite the Falls Bridge car park journeys through the damp, shady woodland and continues up onto heath to a seat overlooking the reserve. From here there are striking views down to Carrick Lough and of neighbouring hills.

    The woodland panorama is native and varied. Underneath birch, oak, ash and holly trees, the damp conditions are favoured by bilberry, mosses and ferns. Filmy fern grows along the banks of the Sillees River as it runs through Correl Glen.

    Correl Glen and the neighbouring Monawilkin are host to many species of butterfly and dragonfly. The Silver-washed Fritillary is the largest butterfly in Ireland and prefers shady clearings.

    The holly blue butterfly flies in May whilst speckled wood butterflies are common throughout the summer.

    Also important to the reserve are the nesting curlews and meadow pipits which nest amongst tussocks or on moss hummocks from mid April to late June and July.
