Description of Trail

This shared use trail can be walked or cycled through a mature woodland setting with splendid views of the River Moy.  Users will pass the ‘Creteboom’, an old concrete boat which has lain beached in the river for over 30 years. Belleek wood is a diverse woodland with broadleaf/conifer and mixed woodland types. Red squirrels were trans located to here around 2006 and the numbers have grown considerably since. Along the riverbank you can observe herons, kingfisher, cormorant and if you are lucky perhaps an otter.
