Woodland Trail

The Athlumney Riverside Trail offers a unique unspoilt experience but you'll need wet weather shoes.

Accessed either from Kilcarn Bridge, through the fence line behind the Council office off Bothar Sion (with care) or via one of many paths from the fields of the IDA.

Please note that the IDA is private property and the Bothar Sion entry gates are locked on weekends.

Also note that fields are farmed for grass so please be respectful.


River Walk

The Ramparts Walk alongside the River Boyne offers a linear path which under new proposals will eventually link Navan with Drogheda.


Hill of Tara

Potentially within 5km reach offering stunning views over the County with a perimeter trail around the main attraction of the mounds.

Local Parks

Blackwater Park in North Navan offers an all weather circular path, lots of open spaces and it's both dog and cycle friendly.

Weekend parking recently has been a problem with the venue proving popular.

Please note that Dalgan Park is currently CLOSED to the public due to the need to protect their elderly residents.
