The Development of the Ulster Appalachian Trail

Start: 10am

Distance: 8km

The Ulster section of the IAT or International Appalachian Trail (IAT) begins at Slieve League in South West Donegal and passes through the small village of Killeter in  Tyrone on its way east towards the Antrim coast. Connecting the IAT with local places of interest for walkers is a natural progression to keeping the trial alive and interesting. This walk joins the IAT after departing Sloughdan Glen and passing over Bolacht Mountain at 400m, to amazing views north and west on a clear day. Led by Liam Campbell

The Killeter Camino

Start: 9am

Distance: 15km

First coined in 2015 but dating back before the foundation of Dublin, the idea of a camino to and from Lough Derg through neighbouring communities of Killeter and Aghyaran is a hike with a difference. This year we will trace a route from Lough Derg across the terrain leading into Tyrone along the Derg river and exploring the 'liminal space' that presides in this meeting place of counties and traditions among the Pettifog plateau and famous Causeway. Expect open hillside, track and minor road with a max elevation of 350m. Led by Lawrence McBride
