This walk forms part of the Shannon Blueway and brings the walker along the banks of the Lough Allen Canal as far as Drumhauver Bridge. Stretching between the lock at Battlebridge and Drumhauver Bridge you take a quiet road and grassy canal bank with comfortable walking surfaces and very little climbing, heading north along the east side of the canal before returning south on the west side.
You are treated to very pleasant walking along a quiet waterway through a rural sylvan setting with fine examples of canal infrastructure along the way – bridges and locks – and glimpses of the more turbulent Shannon River waters nearby. One other trail starts at this trailhead.
