This was originally a very popular walk but the paths became very muddy due to overuse and it had to be abandoned. However all of the paths have now received an excellent upgrade. We get a bus up to the Yellow Water and then climb up to the Red Bog and then make our way through the forest to the Green Road and then back to Rostrevor.
Duration: 4 hours
Highest Point: 340m
Fiddler’s Green Walking Festival 2023
All of these walks will be in the moderate to difficult category. There will be many steep climbs and ascents and many sections are over rough ground so good walking boots or trail runners are highly recommended. If you are not an experienced walker then walking poles would be very useful.
You should also wear waterproof clothing and carry a good waterproof jacket. Please check the forecast in advance to find out conditions for each day.
It is extremely important that you also carry some drinking water, a packed lunch and some high energy snacks.
As we will often be crossing private land with livestock on them, dogs are not allowed, except on the wind up/ wind down walk. We operate a strictly “leave no trace” policy.
All walks are guided and there will only be a small charge to cover the cost of buses as required.
Buses will be from the Square in the centre of the village. Please note times of each walk.
