Union Rock Trail
The start of this trail takes the walker through an area that is managed for biodiversity and is contiguous to the special area of conservation along the edge of Ballygawley lake .The trail takes you through a wide range of both conifer and broadleaf forest. The area fenced off from deer is an old oak wood which is managed by the national parks and wildlife service.
This trail links into the Sligo way and has some lovely views of Knocknarea (supposed burial place of Queen Maedbh of Connacht), the Ox mountain range of West Sligo and the landscape of Sligo/Leitrim to the east.
