Sli Liatroma is a 48km walk through a variety of landscape forms that are common to this beautiful but little known part of north west Ireland.Beginning in typical drumlin country the walker travels through increasingly more beautiful scenery until reaching the summit and wilderness of the uplands at Barlear. The route is made up of tracks old and new in its entirety, resulting in a fairly fast pace. The walk is generally more attractive if undertaken from Drumshanbo to Manorhamilton.
The Miners Way & Historical Trail are a network of walking paths which wind their way through adjoining parts of Counties Leitrim, Roscommon and Sligo. The Miners Way follows many of the paths used by the miners in the Arigna coal mines. This section makes a circuit starting from Arigna and travelling via Keadue, Ballyfarnon and Corrie Mountain to return to Arigna. The Historical Trail section runs in a great loop, leaving the Miners Way at Keadue and running to Lough Key Forest Park, Boyle, Carrowkeel, Castlebaldwin, Highwood and returning to the Miners Way at Ballyfarnon. A third loop connects the Miners Way to Sli Liatroma and goes around Lough Allen by Drumkeeran, Dowra, Drumshanbo and back to Arigna.
