Near to the town of Manorhamilton are three loop walks developed around the village of Lurganboy and Milltown Wood. The loops can either be combined for one long walk or various parts can be followed for shorter less demanding walks.
Some of the walks have steep inclines and give elevated views over surrounding countryside. They go through forest property owned by Coillte and in some cases follow forest access roads. The walks remain close to the village and do not extend into the higher open countryside adjacent to the village in which there are guided walks from time to time.
