The Slieve Bloom Way is a 43 mi (70 km) looped trail that starts and ends at the Glenbarrow Trailhead in County Laois, Ireland. On the trail, you can expect forest and boglands, along peaceful valleys. The trail is moderately difficult with 5883ft (1790 m) of elevation gain spread across the 3 or 4 days it takes to hike. The best time to hike the trail is during June, July or August but it can be hiked during most of the year with proper elevation. The max elevation on the trail is 450 meters so snow should be relatively rare and only during the winter months. If you are wild camping on the trail you should respect local rules and leave no trace.
