The Cavan Way
The Cavan Way is a pleasant hill and valley walking connection between the Leitrim Way at Dowra, a small village near the source of the River Shannon and the Ulster Way at Blacklion. Following generally the course of the young river to its source at the mystical Shannon 'Pot', the walk traverses quiet valley and riverside landscapes to the more unenclosed uplands of the spring line of the river's source. The walker will enjoy the upland section between the 'Pot' and Blacklion, which includes the forested Burren area and its cemetery of ancient tombs, stone megaliths and monuments. Fine views are obtained from these elevated upland areas.
Dowra - Shannon Pot - Blacklion. Total Distance: 26km/16 miles.
Longest Stage: Dowra to Blacklion - 26km/16 miles.
Highest Point: Giant's Grave - 260m/850ft.
