  • Stunning scenery and great walk, however poorly signposted. Paths( with exception of Florencecourt forest trails) are narrow, steep, bumpy and rough . Recommend walking poles and waterproof boots.

    Route Description

    The Cuilcagh Way is a waymarked route that stretches for 33km through a breath taking patchwork of habitats in southern Fermanagh. The route can be walked in sections and provides stunning views, fascinating geology, mystifying wildlife, captivating archaeology and natural history: enough to whet anyone’s appetite for adventure. The Legacurragh Valley Trail is a way marked linear route through some of Fermanagh’s finest scenery, showcasing its wilderness, mountains, valleys, forests and rivers. The terrain consists of a blanket bog path, forestry tracks and tarmac lane, very much away from the hustle and bustle of roads. As the route begins in the mountain area careful planning, constant vigilance and good navigation are required all year round. The route has a wealth of interest in terms of landscapes and heritage, and involves walking through open moorland which is buzzing with nature as well as long stretches along shady woodland paths to discover tranquil rivers, a diversity of flowers and rustic farm ruins. The trail meanders frequently through ever changing scenery which is relatively flat with no severe climbs but some gradual descents. It offers a great escape through charming landscapes with potential for a glimpse of red squirrels, pine martens, deer and butterflies along the way.
