Blue Trail -Adrian’s Way (Linear) Walking Trail
Starting Point: Picnic Area (Mohercrum). Blue Waymark Signs.
There is a fairy fort to the right of the mass rock with lovely views at the picnic area .
To access the walking trail, follow the “Blue Waymark & ‘Adrian’s Way’ sign 100 metres west (Towards Bailieborough) from the Mass Rock on the main road. Turn left at the trail sign and go through the kissing gate to access the walk through the Coillte forest.
After 600 metres there is a bench on the right with views towards Bailieborough and Cavan Town. On a clear day Cuilcagh Mountain and the windmills in West Cavan are visible. With a height of 665 metres, Cuilcagh is the highest point in both counties of Cavan and Fermanagh and the 165th highest on the island of Ireland. If you proceed a further 600 metres approx. the path enters a forested area. Upon reaching a fork in the path, if you turn left at the viewing point sign this will lead you to a section of ridge offering panoramic views of 13 counties and to the East is the Irish Sea. At this point, if you take the narrow path to your right it will provide access to one of Loughanleagh’s three stone age Cairns.
After rejoining the main path through the forest, continue on the trail until you reach a “T” junction. The path to your left will take you down to a picnic table at the end of the trail which adjoins the Kingscourt/Bailieborough Road at the old Edenagully School. The path to your right, takes you onto the Adrian’s Way Loop Walk (See details on this sub menu). If you feel the loop walk is perhaps to challenging for you or time does not allow, return the way you came and it will bring you back to your starting point. The attached map outlines the walkway for you. This trail has been developed with the kind permission and co-operation of Coillte.
