A 2 mile fairly flat (with the exception of one steep hill) walk on tarmac paths in the natural surroundings of Loughgall Country Park - a magnificent 188 hectare estate of open farmland, orchards and 37 acre ‘Lough’.

The walk is part of Highway to Health walking routes - a series of waymarked walking routes throughout Northern Ireland.  There is no charge for the walk, however there is a £2.20 fee for car parking or a yearly car park ticket can be bought for £11.30.

Route

To complete this walk follow the blue waymarkers around the park.

From the carpark follow the tarmac pathway, keep to the left of the two Y junctions and continue through the pedestrian entrance at the metal gate before proceeding 20 metres to the T junction where it meets a tarmac roadway. Turn left here and continue straight ahead at the crossroads following the blue walk way markers. Keep to the left along the tarred road avoiding the first right to the manor house.  Continue straight ahead for 50 metres and avoid the two left turns before proceeding down the hill keeping left at the Y junction.  Keep to the road until you come to a junction at the bottom of a hill (there will be woodland on your left and an open field with large trees on your right).  Follow the path to the right for approximately 100 metres keeping left at the Y junctions (there will be an orchard on your right) before continuing 50 metres to the T junction. Turn right and proceed 100 metres past the boat slipway on the right keeping to the tarmac path before taking a left to return to the car park.
