Established by award winning adventure company Far and Wild, it is run as part of a wider Sperrins Cycle Consortium comprising a range of community-based accommodation, food and micro-enterprises.

The area of the Sperrins is an historic landscape, with archeological evidence of settlement dating back to the Neolithic period (4000-6000BC). Stone circles, wedge tombs, standing stones and ogham (early Irish alphabet) stones pepper the landscape.
