Route Description for Lough Foyle Trail
Featuring an amazing sightline across the estuary and easy-going terrain, the Lough Foyle Trail is a fantastic walking route in Northern Ireland that is suitable for outdoor enthusiasts of all varieties. Be sure to wear comfortable footwear, as this route is a bit on the longer side!
Setting out from the trailhead, you will head to the northeast to cross over Ballykelly Burn, turning right in order to follow the stream towards the shoreline. From here, you will head right and continue along the edge of Lough Foyle while enjoying sweeping views across the surface of the water.
