The Dungloe River Walk is a pleasant stroll in the environs of Dungloe Town taking in the Dungloe River and Glenties Road. On pavement and path you are likely to see amazing birdlife and there are numerous sculptures along the trail.
The Cope Mountain Walk is a purpose-built extension to the Dungloe River Walk skirting around the area called 'Cope Mountain'. From the low-lying Long Lake on your left, to Dungloe Lake, part of the popular Rosses Fisheries, the river, lake and connected Craghy Lough are all very good for sea trout. Dungloe Lake has a number of small wooded islands. The trail follows the edge of the lake with distant views to the picturesque highlands of Thorr in the southern reaches of Gweedore.

marie from Donegal

Beautiful walk with lots to see in the way of flora and fauna. There is a new extension starting soon which should enhance this great facility.
