Route Description

The linear waymarked Errigal Glen Walk (follow green waymarkers) starts and finishes at the Errigal Bridge entrance to Errigal Glen on Temple Road. The route follows the fast flowing Agivey River through the steep-sided and well-wooded Glen. For safety reasons, please keep to the waymarked track through the Glen. Due to risk of falling trees and branches, public access is not encouraged through Errigal Glen during stormy weather.

Having reached the end of the Glen, where it exits on to Churchtown Road, walkers turn around and retrace their steps through the Glen to the starting point.

For information the longer Errigal Glen Trail (circular route, 2.5 miles) also starts and finishes at Errigal Bridge and passes along the same route through Errigal Glen (but due to the fact that it incorporates sections of on-road walking it has not been accredited as a quality walk).

Interpretation panels have been placed at strategic points along the route.

Getting to the Start (by Car)
