This area offers looped walks off the route of the Western Way through Newvillage forest. There are excellent views to the east over Lough Corrib and north towards Cong in Co. Mayo.
There are two walking routes within Newvillage forest. Both involve making a complete loop, bringing the visitor back to the car-park. The longer Lough Seecon route is approximately 6.5km in length, while the shorter route is approximately 5km. Both routes provide stunning views over Lough Corrib. The routes are waymarked throughout – please check the map to choose which colour trail to follow.

Approximately 2kms northwest of Oughterard village in Co. Galway along the Glann road.
