Starting at the Mall, the route passes through
the traffic-free Folly Glen on NCN route 91 before following
narrow twisting roads through the townlands of Cavanacaw
and Killycapple. A short but very steep ascent (you may have to
get off and push!) passes close to several quarries before the
high point (locally called the Cairn Stones) is reached. After a
break, you descend towards Segaghan Dam, turn right for a
short stretch on the B31, then left to reach the Callan river
north of Tassagh. Following the river downstream, in
approximately two miles you pass under the soaring arches of
the Tassagh railway viaduct. You then cross the A20 before
turning right towards Milford - the ‘Home of the Penalty Kick’.
From this historic village the route crosses the A3 then
continues to Navan Fort. The Navan Centre (entrance on the
right) is well worth a visit. From here you continue to the Callan
riverside path then climb past the Church of Ireland Cathedral
to arrive at the City centre.
This route has accessible toilet facilities.
