About

The river Blackwater is a lazy meandering river and is therefore suitable for all abilities.  Access is free and no licence is required.   From the head of the trail at Maydown Bridge the river meanders lazily through the countryside acting as the boundary between the counties of Tyrone and Armagh.  The river comes to an end at Maghery Country Park where it flows gently into Lough Neagh.  From here ccanoeists can join the Lough Neagh Canoe Trail and then the Lower Bann Canor Trail.  The section between Maydown Bridge and Blackwater Town is fast-flowing and  is a narrow channel so a resaonable skill level is required to complete this section of the trail.

Wild camping can be found at Copney Campsite and on Coney Island.
