This delightful trail follows gravel path as it descends to pass through farmland and circumnavigate the beautiful Drumleen Lough below the forested slopes of Tristia Mountain, before crossing open bogland on boardwalk to return to the car park along a path partly separated from the road by bushes, with spectacular views of the surrounding landscape.

Eleanor de Eyto from Mayo

Thank you to the local community and landowners for facilitating the development of this wonderful trail for all to enjoy. An easy 3km lakeside and bog walk with wonderful expansive views. Hopefully I will be able to give it the 5 stars soon when dangerous board walks and bridge have been renewed. Very easy to make this trail wheelchair friendly.

Kevin from Mayo

Lovely walk around the lake for the whole family (kids 3 & 6). Lots of wildlife. Picnic benches at various points. Some gates with stiles to cross.

There is a longer (8km) walk through forestry on the side of the mountain by the lake This walk is shown on the map at the layby.
