This walk starts at the Ardbear Bridge at the waterfall in Clifden town and is 7km in total (3.5km to the end, and 3.5km back to Ardbear bridge). The walk is marked and sign posted as a walking route. Cross over the bridge and onto the Dooneen Road at edge of Clifden town. This is a very enjoyable walk, offering views of The Twelve Bens, Salt Lake, Errisbeg Hill and the Roundstone Bog complex. Follow the way markers onto the newly developed Greenway route which is just for walkers and cyclists. This is the first completed part of the proposed Connemara greenway, which will link Clifden and Galway, mostly along the old Railway line.
