This is a primitive recreation site but one which offers the visitor an opportunity to get into the heart of the forest and bog lands of this part of Connemara. The main item of interest is the 4km bog bridge trail that takes the walker into the heart of this remote forest following the Folore River. The hiker or fisherman who ventures into Lackavrea will be rewarded with magnificent prospects, good fishing, solitude and peace but should also be prepared for rain, wet bogs and midges

located approximately 3km north east of Maam Cross in the heart of Connemara.
