The trail is in the province of Ulster in Ireland and runs from west Donegal in the Republic of Ireland to Larne, Co. Antrim in Northern Ireland. The route starts at the spectacular Slieve League mountain and passes through the Blue Stack Mountains in Co Donegal then crosses into Northern Ireland. Here it picks up the Ulster Way where it passes the Giant’s Causeway, the stunning northern coastline before traversing the Glens of Antrim.
