Route Description

The Craigavon Cycle Trail is a ride through the Borough of Craigavon linking inland waterways, the shores of Lough Neagh and picturesque villages. The level, traffic-free sections through City Park and the Newry to Portadown Canal are suitable for family or novice cyclists whilst the undulating countryside of County Armagh offers magnificent vistas of Slieve Croob and the distant Mourne Mountains for those wishing to explore the area.

From Portadown, travel south on the Newry Canal Towpath as far as Knock Bridge. Then heading north, you pass the ancient Lisnamintry Rath and Waringstown, before joining routes 94 and 9 past Oxford Island Nature Reserve and Lough Neagh towards Craigavon and the City Park. Craigavon is served by an extensive network of cycle paths taking you back to Portadown.
