Glenregan is located in Co. Offaly in the heartland of the Slieve Bloom Mountains. The valley from which Glenregan gets it’s name lies between Stillbrook Hill and Wolftrap Mountain. Glenregan was originally part of the large Kinnitty estate. The forest is on both sides of the Camcor River valley and spans large blocks of forest. The forest envelopes both sides of the Camcor valley and offers great views over the valley onto west Offaly and the River Shannon. The walks and trails in this area are through mountainous terrain and can feel quite remote despite being reasonably close to the R440. There is an extensive network of forest roads for walking and trekking. The Slieve Bloom Way goes through the car-park and can be easily accessed from this point. It runs west to Castle Bernard (Kinnitty) and eastwards to Cadamstown from this point.
Things to do
Walk: The wood has a looped trail which is waymarked and starts and end in the car park. The Glenregan Loop Trail (11kms, 3hrs, moderate) the trail uses forest roads and hiking trails, along the riverside and through the forest to the top of the valley and back, taking in several cultural features along the way.
