The Bangor Trail

The Bangor Trail

This is one of Ireland's truly classic Hikes.  From Bangor Erris to Newport, the Bangor Trail holds the key to the past in its remote beauty.  We will hike a 26km challenging route, across Ireland's classic hike meandering between the hills of Wild Nephin Ballycroy National Park.  Taking in the sights unchanged since Robert Lloyd Praeger's words from his 1930's class "The Way that I Went".


This is a long day out on the hills and approximately 12 hours should be allowed (plus transfer time).  

Terra Firma will provide transport between Letterkeen car park and starting point of Bangor Trail (limited to small groups).
