route description

Saddle up and turn left as you leave the yard, cycling along the old carriageway towards Crom Castle. Left again takes you through the gate into beautiful flat parkland. Follow the path to the Old Castle where one of Ireland's oldest yew trees sits, reputed to be over 1,000 years old. Pedal along the loughside, past the impressive boathouse, before crossing the White Bridge onto the lush Inisherk Island. Travel to the quay before retracing your route back to the bridge.

Make your way to the Summer House, taking the path through ancient oak wood with Upper Lough Erne on your left and the imposing Crom Castle rising to your right. Beyond the stable yard you reach the Castle’s main drive. Continue cycling as far as the crossroads where the path breaks off right around the Green Lough. Pass the lough and coast back down to the Visitor Centre.
