About

This is a short walk along the River Roe, Bovevagh and Gelvin Rivers from the village of Burnfoot through farmland and surrounded by the distinctive peaks of the Roe Valley of Benbradagh, Donald's Hill and Binevenagh. Located on the Roe Valley Scenic Route off the Causeway Coastal Route and part of the Picture This trail. This route allows for a quick fix of countryside just off the beaten track.

ROUTE DESCRIPTION

Starting from the car park on the Derryork Road, this walk follows a surfaced path along the bank of the River Roe to meet the Bovevagh River.  You will pass one of the frames that make up the Picture This trail which looks towards Benbradagh Mountain.

Crossing a small wooden bridge the trail continues downstream to eventually meet a large bridge crossing the Roe. Here you can continue on to meet a farm lane and return back towards the village or you can cross the bridge to the far bank and continue to follow the path to meet the Gelvin River and on towards the Ballyquin Road.

At this point you can return via the route you can along the river or follow the Ballyquin Road to meet the Derryork Road.  Please note that there is no footpath should you chose this option.
