Butler’s Glen Loop

This looped walk is recommended for experienced walkers with high fitness levels as it involves rough terrain (bog and path) and steep slopes, but it takes you into the heart of spectacular mountain landscapes and rewards you with panoramic views of the Inishowen coastline as you ascend. There is a trail to follow on the route starting at the car park on the north side of the Mamore Gap and heading into the hills from here.

Total Climb: approx 200m Distance approx: 10.5 Km Time: 2-3 hours Grading: Difficult

Recommended: hiking boots, snack, water, wet weather clothing

There is also a linear trail from the same starting point which will take you to Straid and the Glenevin waterfall at Glen House. (5.7Km 1.5hrs)
