Lovely. Pity it doesn’t go all the way to Newry but that’s the ridiculous partition of Ireland for you.

Great walk and amazing scenery. Cant wait for the new section to open. You can see updates on the project at

Fergus from Cavan

A great trail. Beautiful views of the mountains and lough from the old railway line. Full of wildlife. Well sign posted throughout. A really nice walk. A bit mucky at the Omeath end where the gravel appears to have thinned out.

This is truly an amazing Irish trail, I have done many trails in different parts of Ireland and globally and for me and my family with two toddlers and a dog this ticks all the boxes. It has a gravel pathway mostly fenced and benches with mountains on both sides hugging Carlingford Lough all the way and throw in the history of it being a former railway line. I'm not doing it justice with this short paragraph but I would say it's a must visit for any walking enthusiast...enjoy
