This is a fabulous walk. I love the slow ascent on the trail and then the stunning views as you get near the top, the delight of the lake for a lunchtime stop and then the descent with its sense of expansiveness. Looking back up I could hardly believe I had been right up there. Deadly trek!!

Great walk with stunning views. The trailhead at Glenade Resource Centre is well signposted from the R280 Manorhamilton Bundoran road. The first section is on tarmac then on to a grassy track. The 277 metre climb is gradual and continuous. We took the walk on a crisp sunny autumn morning and the views were simply stunning. Took us a bit over 2 hours but that included plenty of stops to admire the stunning views.

Stunning. This was a great, relaxing trail. The views over Donegal bay are amazing, I couldn't have picked a better day it was beautiful.

Did the Arroo Trail over the Christmas holidays and it was just fabulous. The views were incredible out over Glenade valley to Truskmore and at the very top, c 300m we could see Classiebawn Castle in Mullaghmore and the Wild Atlantic Way.With the mist descending and ascending during the walk it was just magical.

Parking is great and the directional signs make it easy to find and to follow. The combination of tarred road, track and green road underfoot made it comfortable and varied

This will be one of the routes on Easter Sunday April 1st 2018 for the North Leitrim Glens Hill Walking Festival so I'll be back for that!
