About

This short off-road walk leads around Gortin Lakes with superb views of the Sperrins landscape. The path has recently been upgraded - the firm surface is of a good and consistent standard throughout the walk.

Start Point:
H499842

Finish Point:
H499842

Route:
From the car park, the walk around the two lakes is laid out in the formation of the figure eight and people can choose to walk in either direction. The gravel path around the lakes undulates gently offering the tranquillity of the still, deep water on one side and the natural habitat and vegetation on the other. The path is easily followed with a number of seating benches placed so walkers can take a rest and take in the majestic views.
