14 Kilometres: 1+ hours
This is a short loop. From Bridge Street in Clifden cyclists can pause to view the Owenglen Cascade where salmon can be seen leaping upstream before continuing on up a steady hill while enjoying fine views of Clifden Bay. A signpost indicating the Alcock & Brown monument is the signal to turn. The monument offers a magnificent panoramic vantage point. Water and stone are the themes of this circuit; the rocky landscape is typical of Connemara.
