You can also start this Loop walk from the Black Gate Trailhead
To start from the Tooreen Trailhead / Bernie’s Cafe: Set out towards the lighthouse following the red arrows west, past lovely Lough Akeen, down to the helicopter pad where you have the option to walk down the steps to the lighthouse (worth the views). From the helicopter pad the trail heads back on the northern side of the peninsula in an Easterly direction for 4 to 5 km out onto a quiet country road. At Reagh, follow signs for the poet’s way and Cahergal, cross a stile to travel across the peninsula to the south, before walking west again along the ridge, past the ruins of an old signal tower and a WW2 look out post, until you descend to the Car park at Tooreen.
