Mullaghmeen Multi Access Trail

This short but very pleasant trail gives the visitor an opportunity to access one of the view points in Mullaghmeen forest looking out to the North East. The trail is accessed through a gate at the corner of the car park and goes up a gentle tarmac path, lined on both sides with young broad leafed trees. The trail is a linear trail that goes up to the viewing point and back down again to the car park. Mullaghmeen is an isolated area of forest rising above the farm land of north Westmeath. Mullaghmeen Forest is the largest planted beech forest in Ireland.  Along with beech, within its 400 ha of forest it also has Sitka spruce, Scots pine and noble fir and a very interesting native tree collection.
