Community Trails

In partnership with local communities within the Cuilcagh to Cleenish area Outdoor Recreation NI developed a suite of community trails for walkers, canoeists and cyclists. The trails are the golden threads that connect people to the built and natural heritage assets which they considered important.  Following local consultations four walking trails and a cross-border canoe trail were subsequently developed. Following agreement with local landowners two walking trails and stage one of the 27 mile canoe trail will be completed in 2021.  Funding for these capital projects was provided by DAERA, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council and Catchment Care.

Chris Scott from Outdoor Recreation explains how Permissive Path Agreements are at the core of our trail development.
