It is important to stay to the designated path in order to protect this beautiful habitat for future generations.
Let someone know where you have gone and when you are expected back.
• In an Emergency: call 999 or 101 and ask for Mountain Rescue. The habitat on Cuilcagh Mountain is very sensitive to the footfall of walkers and the boardwalk was constructed to prevent walkers from damaging the protected blanket bog.
Alternative parking options are available at Killykeegan Nature Reserve & at the Marble Arch Caves. Turn left, still following the signs for the Marble Arch visitor centre.
Cuilcagh Legnabrocky Trail in the Cuilcagh Mountain Car Park, Marlbank Road.(Follow the signs for the Marble Arch Caves Visitor Centre from Enniskillen)Take the A4 Sligo Road from Enniskillen. Along this narrow road, there will be a sign on your left hand side for the Cuilcagh Mountain Park. I fully agree with Ciaran about the stepped section and would go further and question the Boardwalk in its entirety.
One piece of advice if your not an experienced hill walker like ourselves, wrap up well and take something to eat & drink. We completed it up and down in just under 3 hrs and we would be fairly fit. Outstanding, awesome, magnificent - certainly one of the best walks in NI. Brilliant insight and brave decision by the Council to construct the boardwalk - Ciaran's rant is ridiculous, especially as he lauds the walk, but not the steps?
