This is an impressive peaceful 2.4km riverside trail along the Bunduff River. The trail follows the course of the Bunduff river as it winds its way towards the sea through mature woodlands which contain many varieties of hardwoods and softwoods and is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna.

The Route
The trail starts from the Bunduff car park adjacent to the N15 close to the Sligo Leitrim boarder. Follow the footpath through the small wooden gate beside the trailhead information sign. Follow the path as its meanders its way through the trees and along the river. When you reach the end return along the same path back to the car park.

Did You Know?
The Bunduff River is 14 miles (23 km) long, flowing from Glenade Valley in County Leitrim to the sea. This river along with the Drowes formed the ancient border between Ulster and Connacht.
The Bunduff River is good for beginner white-water rafters, kayakers, and the like, with approximately 500 metres of class 2/3 rapids and a three-metre (10 feet) drop at the end. As it is a short, mountain river, draining the Dartry Mountains and the Benbulben, water levels are known to change very quickly, after heavy rain. The Bunduff River is also popular for salmon fishing.
