A NEW online map showcases over 130 different walking trails in County Kerry has been launched by Kerry County Council.

The Kerry Trails Map is an online interactive map for Kerry, which provides essential trail information for those who would like to explore the county’s numerous walks and trails.

The map was developed in partnership with the South Kerry Development Partnership and North East and West Kerry Development and was funded through the support of the Department of Rural and Community Development’s Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme.

The project mapped 130 Kerry trails and offers over 270 options for walks throughout the county, and provides essential information including trail location, length, difficulty, duration, GPS coordinates, directions to the trailhead/parking areas and other important information.

“This is a really exciting showcase for what we have to offer here in Kerry,” said the Cathaoirleach of Kerry County Council, Cllr John Francis Flynn.

“Given the popularity now of outdoor pursuits including walking and hiking, it is wonderful to have such a useful and interactive resource being made available to those wanting to explore and enjoy the many walks and trails which are available all over the county,” he said.

Head of Tourism with Kerry County Council, Niamh O’Sullivan said that developing and promoting trails and walks around the county is an integral part of the County Kerry Tourism Strategy.

“Kerry already has a well-established reputation for walking and hiking and this new map, which is so easy to use, will greatly complement the resources and information which is available to walkers from Kerry and beyond,” she said.

“I would like to acknowledge the assistance of Brian Coakley of Active Me who was involved in developing the map as well as SKDP and NEWKD and the Kerry Tourism Industry Federation who supported the initiative from the outset.”

The map can be downloaded for use off-line and offers a 3D view of trails to enhance the user experience.
