Avondale's Beyond The Trees. Wicklow's Amazing New Attraction
|At the top, you get views of the mountains and more. Tired of walking? Take the slide to the bottom!
Begin with a leisurely stroll along the fully accessible 1.4km walkway. Children’s play areas, and interpretive points along the way, will introduce you to a new perspective of the forest. Your journey culminates at the magnificent viewing tower, the first of its kind in Ireland. Take the gentle incline up through the tower to the impressive viewing platform, 38 metres above the forest floor, and enjoy a 360-degree view of Wicklow.
