Roe Valley Country Park

Maps Note: all maps below expand to a larger version.


The Country Park is made up of a long strip of riverside natural woodland which runs along the river Roe. It is at its most spectacular as it cuts a narrow gorge underneath the O’Cahans RockĀ  viewpoint. The cliffs and steep slopes have protected the woods from felling in the past and continue to provide a haven for plants and animals today. There is also a wealth of evidence of farming / industrial history with linen greens, mill races and even a preserved pioneering hydro-electric plant from 1896!

The path network is sufficiently complex to support intermediate level orienteering and is also suitable for beginners.
