Here are descriptions of the routes, these are subject to change if necessary
Duration; 4 hours approx Distance; 10km Height; TBA
The walk starts at the Glencar Waterfall and follows the Cumeen’s Trail, a bog road which ascends to the top of Glencar Valley escarpment. There is a climb at the start but pace will be easy. Enjoy fabulous views over to Knocknarea en route. We'll stop for a cuppa at the half way mark. You will be treated to the most incredible views over Sligo Bay, Truskmore, Leanne, the Leitrim Hills and Glencar Lake & Valley. There will be a gradual ascent and descent on the walk with regular breaks to enjoy the scenery. We will be traversing bog and heather heather for a short period, there is an option to opt out of that if you'd prefer. Walking boots are advised for that section
Strictly no dogs allowed please
