A 2km long walk to the shores of Lough Neagh, along the banks of Toome Canal.
Off road paths
Wide panoramic views over Lough Neagh
From the parking area, walk south towards the loughshore along the banks of Toome Canal. To your right are the remains of the old railway bridge over the Bann. As you continue towards the loughshore, you pass, again to your right, some of the Lower Bann sluice gates. The path soon reaches the shores of Lough Neagh.
To finish this short walk, simply retrace your steps along the canal bank to the parking area or follow the loop to the right, back to the car park.
As you approach Toome from Antrim, the road veers left just past the bus stop. Turn left immediately as this road swings right and park in the small area opposite the lock-keepers cottage.
Information panels are available along the walk. From the car park, it is only a 10 minute walk into the town centre, where there are public toilets and shops where you can purchase refreshments.
