Description: The Miners' Way and Historical Trail is a long distance way marked trail which traces the route taken by the Miners' through the picturesque hills and valleys of counties Sligo, Leitrim and Roscommon. The Miners' Way section makes a circuit starting off from Arigna and travelling via Keadue, Ballyfarnon, Geevagh and Corrie Mountain to return to Arigna. The Historical Trail runs in a great loop, leaving the Miners' Way at Keadue and running to Lough Key Forest Park, Boyle, Ballinafad, Carrowkeel and Highwood, and returning to the Miners' Way at Ballyfarnon. A third loop connects the Miners' Way to Sli Liatroma and goes around Lough Allen by Drumkeeran, Dowra, Drumshambo and back to Arigna. Walking the entire route takes approximately 6-7 days or you can opt for more manageable sections. For the purposes of this website we are going to concentrate on the sections of the trail within County Sligo. For more information log onto irishtrails.ie.
