Miners Way Sunday

A walk will take place on Sunday 7th of April along a section of The Miners’ Way from near the old Power Station at Lough Allen to near Drumkeeran. Participants are meeting at Tarmon church on the road from Drumshanbo to Drumkeeran at 2.30pm. As this is a linear walk we will be carpooling and bringing a smaller  number of cars to where the walk will start at 3.00pm.  The walk is all on minor and mountain roads and is 10.5km long. There is a steep 700m climb near the start and also a steep 1 km decent at the finish. There are stunning views of Lough Allen, Slieve Anerin and the Cavan mountains. The walk is described as challenging with a walking time of about 2.5 hours. Walkers are advised to wear walking shoes or boots and bring along a snack, drink and a mobile phone. There will be a short stop for a break half way through the walk. All are welcome. No fee. See Miners Way Facebook page.
