Point of interest:Lough Fadda, Blessingbourne House
Getting to the start by car:Less than 1 mile from the town of Fivemiletown, Blessingbourne is easy to find. From Fivemiletown take the B122 to Fintona passing the Church of Ireland on the right. Soon after the church, the road begins to veer left, turn right onto the Aghingowly Rd, passing the Gate Lodge and main entrance to the Estate - this is a private entrance, do not use.
Continue for another 0.3 miles and then take the first right into the Estate up a concrete laneway. The car park is approx 50m on the right.
Terrain:gravel paths & tarmac
Route:Fully waymarked throughout this circular walking trail begins at the trail head in the farm yard and meanders through a mix of woodland and open farmland before crossing the main drive and reaching Blessingbourne’s beautiful Lough Fadda. Simply follow the purple woodland walk waymarkers from the trail head.
On mostly wide surfaced paths, this gentle trail offers unique opportunities for exploration through parts of Blessingbourne Estate which have been previously out of reach to walkers. Please be aware of mountain bikers using some sections of this trail in the opposite direction.
