Walking & Hiking

Pull on a pair of walking boots, point yourself in any direction you like and feel the wilderness speak to you. The walking experience in County Donegal is second to none. From our Waymarked Ways, National Looped Walks, Coastal Paths and Island Loops, County Donegal is a walkers mecca!

Lenan Loop

Clonmany

Lenan Trail Clonmany A-B. Leaving the trailhead at the beach at Lenankeel follow the green (and purple) arrows as the loop turns right crosses a concrete bridge and follows a surfaced roadway for 150m. The purple arrows are for a longer and more challenging Urris Lakes Loop. After 150m the road turns sharp left at a farmhouse – the loops turn right here and join a stony roadway. Pass through a gate and continue to follow this bog road as it starts to ascend. After only 300m you reach a Y-junction. This is the point to which you will return later – for now veer left and uphill.

B-C. Continue to follow the green and purple arrows as both loops ascend for nearly 1km to reach some old sheds. Here both loops turn right onto a bog road which takes you downhill to reach (after 500m) a junction near a stream crossing. The longer Urris Lakes Loop turns left here – but you turn right.

C-B-A. Now follow this bog road which runs parallel to the coastline with fine views over Lenan Bay. After nearly 1km you regain the junction at B above – this time continue straight ahead. Descend to reach the surfaced road at the farmhouse again – turn left and enjoy the 150m back to the trailhead!
