    Route Description

    Start the route by following the farm track, adjacent to an information panel showing the route in the hamlet of Rousky. Follow the track downhill, passing over several large stiles, until reaching the bottom of the hill and a grassy area. Follow the waymarker posts leading you along the river bank to reach a gated bridge that crosses the Ownereagh River. Cross the bridge and begin to ascend the valley side. There are more large stiles to cross and a very steep upland section. Continue to follow the waymarker posts along stone paths to reach the end of the route at the Lenagh Road. Retrace your steps to get back to the start.
