  • Description has circular Riverside walk however it more of a roadside route as it soon follows the main Cookstown to Omagh road, before dropping down to verges with very overhanging trees, as one in the party was visually impaired this became a major issue. On the plus side the grass was well trimmed on route. My main issue with this walk was when Dunnamore village was reached it exits onto a very busy stretch of road and on a bend. From here the route was unclear and had us retace our steps back the way we came. On reaching the car at the start we viewed the map and found we were ment to follow the busy and twisted road out Dunnamore, on the road (no verge) in my opinion this was definitely not safe. Therefore I would not recommend this walk particularly if you have children or mobility issues.
