The Loughshore Trail consists mainly of quiet, virtually traffic-free minor roads and lanes with short stretches of traffic-free. Touching the lough shore on many occasions, cyclists pass small beaches overlooking the vastness of water.
The route has many attractions, including the 1,000-year-old Celtic high cross at Ardboe, the grounds of Clotworthy House and the spectacular railway viaduct at Randalstown. There is an option to continue north from Toome to Portglenone to take in the smaller Lough Beg.
