Glen (Bridle Path Walk )

Glen (Bridle Path) Walk

Length:    8km (Not a looped walk so walkers must return or arrange a drop off or collection)
Time:       2hrs
Terrain:    A mostly flat dirt/gravel road rising gently over last 3km

This walk is a natural extension of the lakeside walk. It follows the shortest and most easily negotiated natural route through the Derryveagh Mountains. However, before the glen road was built, the route was so rocky and densely wooded as to be virtually impassable. Old settlements, now derelict, and native oak woodland can be seen along the walk which offers spectacular views of Lough Veagh and the surrounding mountains.  (Location: Start at the back of the Castle (Grid Ref: C019208 )
