Walking & Hiking in Donegal


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!

The Gap Trail


This purpose built walking and cycling trail follows the old railway line which served a Bord na Mona turf extraction facility.

It crosses the Ownea River (and the Bluestack Waymarked Way at this point), passes through an area of forestry and

ends at the remote, but hauntingly beautiful, Lough McHugh.
