Information courtesy of Coillte Ireland:
There are two looped woodland trails and a spur trail up to Templetrine Church.
The Kilmore Loop (1.5km, 30 mins, moderate) is a relatively short but pleaseant workout walk through the woods.
The Old Deerpark Loop (5.2 km, 1 hour 40 mins, moderate) explores the wider wood, taking in the impress deer wall that is intact since the days of the old estates.
The Templetrine Spur (1.6km, 30 mins, moderate) is well worth the effort to this old church and graveyard, the earliest headstone dated to 1832 but the earlier church wall is thought to date back to the 1600’s.
