County Tyrone - Lough Fea Circular Walk

Meander along the forested shores of a woodland lake

Set against a rugged mountain backdrop, Lough Fea is a beautiful lake in the Sperrins region. It covers 180 acres and also supplies the whole area with fresh water.

A 4km pathway right around the lake leads you through the coniferous forest that surrounds this area of wild beauty.

The hour-long walk is popular with locals and tourists alike as it has many picturesque views of the calm waters and the rolling fields which stretch into the horizon.

You start from the main car park on the B162 Cookstown to Draperstown Road. This walk is a circular route, surrounding the shores of the Lough, finishing back at the car park and is clearly marked.

This trail is great for birding, hiking, and running, and it's unlikely you'll encounter many other people while exploring.
