Stairway to Heaven, Cuilcagh Boardwalk

Sunday 12th May 19

Venue: Beside The Marble Arch Caves, Fermanagh

Walk the 'Stairway to Heaven' Cuilcagh Boardwalk, part of the Marble Arch Caves UNESCO Global Geopark,  with our experienced team of mountain leaders on Sunday 12th May 2019.   

Cuilcagh Mountain is 665 metres high and is located on the border between County Fermanagh and County Cavan. It is the highest point in both counties. The starting point for the Cuilcagh boardwalk is at the Marble Arch Caves. 

The Cuilcagh Legnagbrocky Trail is a linear route which will appeal to walkers with some experience walking in the hills. The route is quite isolated and showcases the scenic wilderness of Cuilcagh Mountain. The trail meanders along a quiet farmland track before traversing a wooden boardwalk that consists of a steady climb to the mountain face. Here a stepped boardwalk climbs through steep terrain and boulders fields before reaching the summit plateau. A rough mountain path negotiates the wild summit plateau for a few kilometres before reaching an ancient cairn (the remains of a burial mound dating from the Bronze Age 2,500 – 500 BC) that stands at 666 metres (2,182 ft) above sea level.

The imposing mountain flanks of Cuilcagh give this walk a very atmospheric feeling providing breathtaking views, the most impressive view is of Lough Atona, a lake nestled at the foot of the mountain which was carved out by the glacier during the last Ice Age approximately 13,000 years ago.
