Red Kite Walk

Address
Avoca Village

The Red Kite walk will take you through some wonderful woodland and you can view the village from the forest walk that overlooks it, just follow the red way marking signs. Not only will walkers love this 2.5km trail, but birdwatchers are in for a real treat too! In 2009, The Golden Eagle Trust re-introduced a set of Red Kite birds into Kilmagig Forest. Now in 2014, there are 30 breeding pairs who have made their habitat around the Red Kite Walk, which is part of the forest. Well signposted, this self-guided walk overlooks Avoca Village and you will enjoy stunning scenery along its route. There’s also a cemetery along the trail dating back to the 1800s, along with beautiful flora and fauna.
Please keep dogs on lead at all times.
