Next Walk

Saturday 18 January 2020  –  Urris Lakes Loop, Co Donegal OS 3     Grade B / C             

The walk starts and ends at a small car park adjacent to Lenankeel Beach [Grid Ref 307437] N.W. of the Mamore Gap.  From the beach we gradually climb to a height of 290m where we shall visit Crunlough followed by Lough Fad.  The walk is an easy “B” and is mainly on a waymarked stoney track and boggy path, however on the descent there is a 50m section which is badly eroded and is very slippery so extra care is required.  The walk will take approximately 3 hours.  Boots are essential with walking poles and gaiters recommended.  Meet at Leisure Centre as usual 9.30am with a rendezvous at Canal Basin car park in Strabane at 9.50am.  Anyone meeting us at start of walk should be there for 11am.
