Geology Rocks – Hike for all

Geology Rocks – Hike for all

Ever fancied having a go at a hike but didn’t know where to start? Or didn’t think you’d be able to? Then come along and join experienced guides from Geology Rocks Adventure Tourism for a gentle guided hike around Slieve Gullion forest park and lower slopes.

Your guides will take you on a gentle hike through the forest and fascinate you with facts about the nature and geology around you. They’ve also been known to tell a good yarn or two, so your sure to be entertained whilst getting a taste for walking or travelling through the hills.

This gentle hike is suitable for all ages and abilities and will stick to paths and trails suitable for buggies and wheelchairs. If you have any questions about the hike, please contact the team at Geology Rocks – email: [email protected]; tel: +44 (0) 77 0711 1906.
