Description of Trail

This walk follows minor road, bog road, path and part of the Great Western Greenway as it traverses the foothills of the Nephin Begs and under Ben Gorm through turf cutting country on what is known locally as the "High Road". With glorious scenery all around, you gradually gain height before spectacular views open up over Clew Bay and Croagh Patrick.
