Mayo is largely unspoilt. Its clean countryside, varying landscapes, unique scenery and rich heritage and folklore mark it as an ideal walking destination. The county offers most types of walking, including mountain and hill walks, coastal and island, rural and urban. The variety of these walks combine to give you an unforgettable experience.
Bangor Trail/Letterkeen Loop: Not for the faint hearted, a 40km drover trail through the Nephin Beg mountains , a genuine boggy mountain wilderness.
Belleek Walk, Ballina: A gentle 4km stroll through mixed beech,
oak, Scots pine and silver fir on the former Belleek estate along the River Moy. Look out for a hermitage, ice house and a Famine wall and if you are lucky you might spy badgers, kingfishers, cormorants and otters.
Cong Forest trail: The old monks trail from Cong Abbey through a lost world of sequoia, Monterey pine, redwoods, oak and yew planted by members of the Guinness brewing family 150 years ago. It is officially 4km long, but it can take you all the way to County Galway. It also connects with a maze of Coillte forest trails stretching between Lough Mask and Lough Corrib.
