The Ballycrystal Trail begins about 5km from Kiltealy village. From the village trailhead, drive out of the village towards Enniscorthy and follow the directional fingerpost signs to the start of the trail, up in the valley under Mt. Leinster, atop which sits the Radio Teilifís Éireann television transmitter. This is a looped 3.4km trail through the forest that mostly follows the forest roadways and is marked by purple waymarked posts.
