WALKING The Cavan Way The Cavan Way is a pleasant hill and valley walking connection between the Leitrim Way at Dowra, a small village near the source of the River Shannon and the Ulster Way at Blacklion. Following generally the course of the young river to its source at the mystical Shannon 'Pot', the walk traverses quiet valley and riverside landscapes to the more unenclosed uplands of the spring line of the river's source. The walker will enjoy the upland section between the 'Pot' and Blacklion, which includes the forested Burren area and its cemetery of ancient tombs, stone megaliths and monuments. Fine views are obtained from these elevated upland areas.
Route Details: Dowra - Shannon Pot - Blacklion. Total Distance: 26km/16 miles. Longest Stage: Dowra to Blacklion - 26km/16 miles. Highest Point: Giant's Grave - 260m/850ft. The Cavan Way Map Guide is published by Cavan County Council and available from Eastwest Mapping and tourist offices in the region.
Cuilcagh Mountain Walks Encompassing the highland area of Counties Cavan and Fermanagh, a largely undiscovered treasure throve of scenic beauty exists above the floor of the Arney and Shannon valleys. The published walks range from 1km to 17km in length and embrace the megalithic sites in the Burren area of Co. Cavan above Blacklion, the Marlbank Scenic Loop near Florence Court and the famous Marble Arch Caves in Co. Fermanagh.
Dun an Rí Forest Park Dun na Rí Forest Park near Kingscourt, is a place of surprising contrasts. There are romantic walks through deep, leafy glades over old bridges. At one spot the trees clear, giving marvellous views north to Slieve Gullion in Co. Armagh and the Mountains of Mourne. The park once belonged to the Pratts, a local landlord family. Visitors can see the ice house where they stored food in the days before refrigerators. The centrepiece of the park is perhaps the Wishing Well.
Killykeen Forest Park Five miles west of Cavan town is Killykeen Forest Park, in the heart of Cavan's lakelands. Marked trails lead into the dark forests where visitors can view the park's fauna and flora, disturbed only by the sound of birdsong and the rippling waters of Lough Erne. Killykeen is a special place in all seasons and at all times.
