Mote Park Forest
Situated a 5 minute drive from Roscommon town center is the forest of Mote Park
A lovely little forest with a couple of walking track options. A great spot to get out with the family and get some fresh air. plenty of trails and to keep you going and enjoy some peaceful time.
Our trip to Mote Park Roscommon
On entering a map of all the tracks and trails you can take through Mote Park. A great idea to get a start at where you will head.
A beautiful long stretch looking straight into the forest is you first view. A well paved walkway which was most surprising and very welcomed.
Another pathway through the forest. A beautiful time of the year with the autumn leaves and the crisp fresh air my son was fascinated with the leaves all over the ground.
The first of two trails was the Bluebell walk taking you off to the side and through the dense forest, leading back down the side past fields and looping back to the beginning entrance.
The second trail we came across was the Crofton trail again another trail this time off to the other side of the forest and again leading down to the beginning and the entrance of the forest. This trail is slightly longer than the first and slopes down into the forest and certainly a lot more to see
The forest is perfect for a family outing with as seen above one of many picnic benches along the way and with small tracks behind into the forest the kids would be entertained for a while.
The forest is well maintained and very easily accessible for anyone.
We only did the 2 loops around the tracks, but past the Crofton trail the forest went on and on and well we will have to see what is up there on another trip, we will update when we find out what is there.
But all in all a perfect spot for a morning walk and get out amongst nature and the crisp fresh air.
Thanks for stopping by its been a pleasure to share these trips with you.
