Lough Caum

Trail description

This trail which consists of a walk right around Lough Caum  It starts at the car park, follows the lake shore right around its points and inlets and back to the car park again. This tranquil lake 210 metres over sea level is a fisherman's paradise, it is stocked with rainbow trout on a regular basis by the Fisheries Board. As you walk around the lake the vista opens up to show Stradbally mountain and Beenoskee to the west. To the south can be seen the forest as it creeps up the side of Reamore hill. Loose boulders around the lake and up the hillsides add to the ruggedness of the landscape.
