Gortmaconnell and Owenbrean River Walks

This walk brings you through some of the most beautiful scenery that the Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark has to offer.

Follow the geological timeline back through hundreds of millions of years to when the area was under a shallow tropical sea and Ireland lay close to the equator. These walks take you over limestone hills and along river banks into the foothills of Cuilcagh Mountain and one of the wildest places in Northern Ireland.

Along the way you can learn about the shared geological history of geoparks from Ireland all the way to Norway and Canada.

Keep an eye out for the volcanic Cuilcagh dyke or the disappearing river and if your lucky you might spot some of the feral goats that have roamed these hills for thousands of years.
