ends at the remote, but hauntingly beautiful, Lough McHugh.

Distance: Approximately 2.8 kms
Time: 1 hours
Terrain: Purpose built path suitable for walking and cycling.
Grading: Easy and level for the whole route.

Getting There

The car park at the start of the walk lies approximately midway between Ardara and Glenties on the N56
