Description

The beautiful coastal trail starting at the old Cross Abbey ruins, along the beachfront. The Iniskea islands are visible from the shoreline and the beach extends for approximately 2.5km. This hike is best done at low tide so as to make use of the extensive strand. A black postmarked with the trail arrows on your left points you through a marked pathway along the sand dunes and linking to a Cross Lake.

This lake is known for its swans and variety of wildlife. The lake shore road continues and veers left and links back up to the Cross Abbey starting point. A wonderfully refreshing hike for any time of year!
