Walking at Arrowrock Lodge, Lough Arrow, Sligo
Arrowrock Lodge is ideally located for visitors interested in walking through the dramatic landscape of North West Ireland.
The Bricklieve Mountains and the Curlew Mountains are all within easy reach of the hostel and offer the walker a constantly changing vista at every turn.
The Miners Way and Historical Trail pass within 1km of the hostel and there are many other walking routes on the nearby mountains, particularly directly across the lake where the Bricklieve Mountains are crowned by the Carrokeel Neolithic Tomb complex.
There are many shorter sections of the trail which can easily be accessed from the hostel and offer walks of 3 to 5 hour loops passing numerous historic sites and offering stunning views across Lough Arrow and the surrounding areas.
The Miners' Way and Historical Trail is a long-distance way marked trail going through parts of Leitrim, Roscommon and Sligo. It is a 118-kilometre (73-mile) long circular route that begins and ends in Arigna, County Roscommon. Total time to complete the full trail is 5 to 7 days.
Large sections of the route follow the traditional tracks used by coal miners going to and from the mines at Arigna. The Historical Trail is the section passing Carrowkeel and running around Lough Arrow. This section passes just behind Arrowrock Lodge.
The area has everything to offer from magnificent lake land vistas that emerge as you cross a ridge or round a bend in the road to stunning skies, a backdrop that constantly changes the colour and texture of the landscape and is a delight to the eye and irresistible to the artist or photographer.
Walking any of the smaller roads or marked pathways is a delightful way to explore the county at a leisurely pace and to discover treasures that would be missed from a car.
