Easy to moderate 6km walking trail starting and finishing at Ballyconnell Bridge

Located in the west of County Cavan, the vibrant town of Ballyconnell has won numerous National Tidy Town awards and is located on the Shannon Erne Waterway, overlooked by the Slieve Russell mountain. The waterway is a canal which links the Shannon and Erne rivers. It was originally opened in 1856, but was revamped and re-opened in recent years for cruisers, boats and canoes.

The walking loop starts from the bridge in the middle of the town and explores the banks of the Woodford River and Annagh Lough Woods, a wonderful woodland of oak, ash and beech trees.
