Cavan Leitrim Rail to Trail Proposal

The Cavan & Leitrim (C & L ) Greenway project is a joint proposal from six local Development Committees to open a quality greenway on the route of the disused narrow gauge railway line between Mohill, Co Leitrim and Belturbet, Co Cavan. In addition to being a quality cycle route, it is also proposed as a recreational tourism project which meets the highest standards in safety and quality while giving access to the best of what the area has to offer.

The route is 41 kms (26 miles ) long and consists of three sections :

Section 1. Mohill – Fenagh – Ballinamore, 15 kms
Section 2. Ballinamore – Aughawillan – Ballyconnell, 16 kms
Section 3. Ballyconnell – Belturbet. 10 kms.

Almost all of the route remains intact and the ground is remarkably level due to a series of cuttings, embankments and bridges. It provides access to a rich variety of local landscapes including bogs, drumlins, woodland, lake and canal side views, working farms and the facilities of the four main centres of population in the area. Much of the route is in the foothills of the Sliabh an Iarainn and Sliabh Rushen mountains.
