Walks within the Arigna region include the Arigna Miners' Way & Historical Trail, Sliabh an Iarainn Way, The Leitrim Way, Glenfarne, and Lurganboy. Walks are also being developed at Cuilcagh Mountains, Kiltycashel, and Glencar.

The Miner’s Way and Historical Trail are waymarked long distance walking routes over three counties that form a network of paths that total 128 kms (80 miles) with a total ascent of some 2,150mtrs.

The Miners Way gets its name from the coal mining which took place in the Arigna Mines up until recent times and follows the paths the miners travelled on their journey to work. There are also many amazing historical sites to discover on route including the Prehistoric Carrowkeel Megalithic Complex (predates Stonehenge and Newgrange) set against the beautiful backdrop of the Bricklieve Mountains.
