Description of Trail

Much of this walk is on the fine sandy beach at Cross Common with the remainder mostly on sandy track and minor road with underfoot generally firm and even. Migrant Barnacle and Grey geese graze the sandy fields and dunes around Cross Lough. Off-shore lie the islands of Inishglora, Inishkeeragh and the Inishkeas, with their folklore, history and birdlife.
