Starting in the small town of Dromineer, on the shores of Lough Derg, this trail follows the border of the lake and on to the River Shannon and eventually to the historical city of Limerick. Along the way, hikers are treated to quaint views of the River Shannon and panoramic views of the Slieve Bernagh range of mountains to the west.
The trail is 67km long and has a total elevation gain of 729m. There are plenty accommodation options along the way, including some campsites. It is generally not advised to wild camp along the trail.
Dogs are allowed on this trail, but must be kept on a leash. This is long-distance hike. Normally hikers would complete this over a number of days. The average would be 3-4 days, depending on ability.
