Timeline photos#wednesdaywalks are with us again!Rathgormack Walks are a series of way marked road, woodland and mountain walks in this wonderfully scenic part of north Co. Waterford. The village of Rathgormack can act as your base for all of your walks in this area. It is possible to visit 4 of the Comeraghs 13 impressive coums all within 7kms of the village of Rathgormack itself including Lough Mohra, Coumduala, The Boolas and Crotty’s Lake.For those who relish somewhat of a mountain challenge then the trails which start in the parking area in the townland of Curraheen are for you. The Boolas Loop, a Fáilte Ireland National Looped Walk, is the ‘big one’ here at over 9kms in length, over testing mountain terrain. For those looking for a mix of woodland and mountain terrain then you can start your walk from Glenpatrick Wood parking area or Glenpatrick Bridge Picnic Area. Breathtaking views of the Comeraghs and surrounding countryside are guaranteed. The Boolas Loop Walk links two of the most spectacular glacial features in the Comeraghs. At 1km in length, Coum Iarthar is the longest coum and houses the highest lake in the mountains and is known locally as the Boolas. The Gap, which is the highest mountain pass in County Waterford has linked Rathgormack and the Nire Valley for centuries.
