After Roundwood you pass through Annamoe. 2.6km after Annamoe, you will see a Coillte sign for Trooperstown on your left (opposite the Trooperstown Lodge B&B). Turn in here at the ‘Orienteering’ Signpost (Grid reference T155 972). If you get to Laragh you have gone too far, turn back, and the turn is now on your right after 1.6km.
