Take the N59 (Leenane Road) from Westport, go through Knappagh and turn right at the Owenwee sign. Entrance is through a wooden gate on the right hand side.
Enter Brackloon Wood through the gap to the left of the gateway and follow the path as it circles through the forest in an anticlockwise direction. Ignore the two turns to the left. The path leads directly to the exit gate; go through the stile to the right of the gate.
