The second half of The Sligo Way (Irish: Slí Shligeach) follows the southern shore of Lough Gill. The Sligo Way in total is 78 kilometres (48 miles) long and begins in Larrigan, near Lough Talt and ends in Dromahair. It is designated as a National Waymarked Trail by the National Trails Office of the Irish Sports Council and is managed by Sligo County Council, Sligo Integrated Development Company and the Sligo Walks Partnership.
Starting at the shores of Lough Talt, the trail crosses the Ox Mountains, via Lough Easkey, to reach Coolaney and then follows roads to Collooney. From Collooney, it crosses Union Wood, past Ballygawley Lough, and, entering Slish Woods, follows the shore of Lough Gill to reach the end at Dromahair. The terrain consists of forest tracks, roads and moorland paths.
