Stairway to Heaven Walk

4 miles (6.4 km)

This popular walk follows the Cuilcagh Boardwalkor 'Stairway to Heaven' on Cuilcagh Mountain in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland.
It's a fascinating area with interesting flora and splendid limestone scenery to enjoy on the way above the blanket bog. After making your way along the boardwalk you begin a final ascent along a series of steep steps to the Cuilcagh viewpoint.
You can start the walk from the car park at Marlbank Road at postcode BT92 1ER. Then pick up the boardwalk heading south for a distance of just over 4 miles until you reach the wonderful viewpoint at the end.
The area is also great for rare wildlife so keep your eyes peeled for Eurasian golden plover the Merlin, one of the smallest birds of prey.
For a longer circular walk see the Cuilcagh Mountain Walk.
