Route:
The trail may be walked in either direction, however, we have outlined a route starting at the community centre. Leaving the community centre car park turn left towards the village and continue along the public footpath crossing the Douglas Bridge and up the hill. At Drumderg Cottages turn right into Drumderg Road, Hudy’s Way signage and waymarkers point the way. Continue upwards along the country road as it winds past houses and theoccasional abandoned farm house. Signs for both Hudy’s Way and Ulster Way point left towards the derelict clachan of Crockataggart. Beyond Crockataggart, follow the field track left past a deserted farmhouse and uphill. Waymarkers will direct you towards a stile to the left along the hedge line. Cross the Drumderg River at the metal footbridge and another stile brings you into a field. Walk towards another abandoned farmhouse and the Dunlogan Road. Turn left onto the Dunlogan Road and continue westwards and slightly uphill. Metal road signs indicate the route leaves the road onto a lane leading to a private house and farmyard. Pass the house on the left and go through the gate taking care to leave it as you found it. Immediately turn right along a grassy lane towards some old but atmospheric farmstead ruins. Passing the ruins the route turns right and then crosses the Dunlogan River at the footbridge. A stile leads into rough meadow. Keeping to the right of this field a stile leads into another field, cross this adjoining field and another stile leads to a third field where another stile will bring you onto a grassy lane leading onto the Ranaghan Road. Turn right along Ranaghan Road for a short distance before a sign leads you left across some fields. Stay to the left where a stile leads towards a stream. The route continues past a modern bungalow and the access lane leads to the Moneyneany Road. Turn Right on the Moneyneany Road and shortly a sign will lead left towards Crockawilla on the Moneyneany Lane. This lane soon joins the Moydamlaght Road where you turn left and after a short distance you reach Moydamlaght Forest car park. Follow the waymarkers through the forest uphill where Hudy’s Way leaves the other trails and turns right along a grassy track eastwards between the trees. Near the forest boundary the route turns north leaving the forest before crossing some boardwalk and continues downhill past a farmhouse and through the farmyard. Follow this lane downhill and bearing right where you join the Dunmurray Road. Turn right at the cross roads onto the Fivemilestraight which leads back into Moneyneany. A final right turn will lead you back along the public footpath to the community centre.
