Antrim & Newtownabbey Borough Council has improved access for canoeists along the Six Mile Water River, making it a safer place to paddle. The project included the construction of canoe steps at Muckamore, the creation of access and egress points and an information point at Barbour’s Weir and life rings along the River.
Lough Neagh Canoe Trail
Lough Neagh is the UK’s largest inland lake with a shoreline of over 90 miles/150km. Paddlers can explore the numerous bays and inlets around the Lough or the vast expanse of open water whilst observing a diversity of wildlife and historical sites.
Lower Bann Canoe Trail
Stretching from Lough Neagh to the Atlantic Ocean, this scenic 58km canoe trail along the River Bann offers canoeists both tranquil waters and some faster flowing sections. The Lower Bann Canoe Trail links up with the Lough Neagh Trail at Toomebridge.
