Traffic free sections include the cycle track through Backburn Park in Limavady town centre, useful for everyday journeys and a hilly trail through Binevenagh Forest near Bellarena.

From Foreglen, you follow the route north, climbing steadily as you cycle along quiet country roads. After crossing the River Roe you arrive at the Roe Valley Country Park a beautiful location with spectacular gorges, a river and mature woodland. The town of Limavady is located a short distance away and a shared-use path for walkers and cyclists will take you through Backburn Park to the town centre. The final section follows the hilly trail through the forest with the summit of Binevenagh Mountain off to your left.
