    The Muckross Lake Loop takes you around 13 kilometers around Muckross Lake. The start and finish point is near the Muckross House.Passing the Muckross House, you can admire the stately garden and park. The complex also includes an arboretum that you pass by. As soon as you have passed it, there are wonderful views of the lake on the route on the east bank.At the southwest tip of Muckross Lake you walk in a loop past the Torc waterfall, before the path leads you back to the south shore of the lake.If you're hungry halfway through the route, you can make a detour to Dinis Cottage Team Rooms. Covered with coffee and cake, you can take a break here and enjoy the view of Muckross Lake.You also quickly hike along the west side of the lake. Arrived on the north side, there is a fantastic panorama over the lake, especially on the Muckross Lake Bridge.Not even two kilometers further you will come across a fascinating rock formation on the north bank. Wind and weather have shaped the limestone here. The picture of the stony bank area will accompany you on the last few kilometers to the starting point.If you still have the time and inclination, you can pay a visit to the Muckross House. In the museum located in the house you will get a good impression of the life of the nobles in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
