Leghowney Loop Scenic Walk is a 4.3 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Aghlem Bridge, Donegal, Ireland. The starting point is Leghowney Community Hall which has car/coach parking for approximately 200 spaces. These walks have been recently developed by the hard working Leghowney community in co-operation of Coilte (Irish Forestry Service). Leaving the Community Hall, follow the signs with the swirling logo of the walk. The first stage leads you through a forest taking you upwards towards the mountain top. This is the hardest part of the climb and is not suitable for buggies or youngsters under 10. The pathway levels out and it is an easy stroll from there onwards. From the top, the views are stunning of the surrounding countryside - Donegal Bay, Bluestack Mountains, Lough Eske and Ben Bulben in Co Sligo are just some of the many landmarks for the walker to savour.
