Get on your bike! Bicycles for all ages are available to hire in Lough Boora and offer another way for you to enjoy the Mesolithic, Farmland and Turraun Cycle Routes.
Use a solo or tandem bike to explore 22km of trails, winding through the park’s lakes, wetlands and rich grasslands. Start from the new Visitor Centre and cycle around the periphery of the protected NPWS Grey Partridge Conservation Area, stopping for a rest at one of the park’s bird hides or a picnic at the Pavilion.
There is a car free cycle path with a tarred surface that offers approximately 9km of track for everyone including children to enjoy. It is a very peaceful route that allows cyclists to discover the local flora and wildlife, sculptures, historic Mesolithic Site and open areas of cut-away bog alongside the Boora canal.
All of the park’s routes, except for the Finnamore Lakes and Sculpture Park Routes, are accessible on your bike.
