Keep Moving in Nature!

15 Scenic Trails across the East Cork & Cork Harbour Region

SECAD has launched an interactive online brochure that provides inspiration to get outdoors in 15 spectacular locations, across the East Cork and Cork Harbour region.

The brochure, which was created by SECAD, includes walkways, and cycleways to explore Coastal, River & Wood Trails in the Ring of Cork and provides inspiration to get outside and keep moving, in nature.

Located across the East Cork and Cork Harbour region, the locations have been handpicked so there is something to suit everyone. From morning hikes to Sunday strolls, family picnic spots to fishing areas, the list has been carefully curated.

The past few years have shown an increased demand for outdoor recreational spaces and Keep Moving in Nature provides a unique offering for visitors and locals. The brochure includes well known locations such as the Youghal Boardwalk and Ballincollig Regional Park.  It also includes lesser-known gems such as the Knockadoon Cliff walk and Ballyannon Woods, and explorers can stumble upon historical features along the way.

Elga Ryan from SECAD Partnership CLG commented:

“Getting outside and staying active has never been more important.  We are so lucky to have such incredible amenities right here on our doorstep, but sometimes, with so much choice, we don’t know where to start. Keep Walking in Nature is a prompt – its inspiration. We wanted to create something for people who might think “where will I go today?” and can simply choose one of the 15 fantastic locations in the Ring of Cork.

The brochure means you can pick what’s right for you, for the time you have, or your mood on the day – or start at the top and tick off each activity, week by week.”

Funding from the Department of Community & Rural Development through the Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme made this project possible.
