This easy, 6km loop takes its name from the townland of Knockballiniry near the village of Goatenbridge (also known as Goat’s Bridge). The village is nestled in the valley of the River Suir and on the slopes of the Knockmealdown Mountains. The ‘Goat’s Bridge’ spans the River Tar (a tributary of the Suir) which passes through the village.
Mountain ranges in the area include the Comeraghs, the Knockmealdowns, Slievenamon and the Galtees. Their presence forms a natural amphitheatre of beauty and peaceful existence.
