The Caragh Lake Loop is a  60KM cycle traversing some of the most scenic landscape in the area.  Starting at Beaufort G.A.A. Club grounds, it follows the initial route of the Ring of Beaufort as far as Glencuttane Cross.  

At this point, the adventurous beginner can opt to continue on in the direction of Glencar as far as Gortamaloon Cross where the participants of the Caragh Lake Loop join the route of the Ring of the Reeks Cycle and continue towards scenic Caragh Lake and ultimately returning to Beaufort.

Needless to say, there will be hot food after the cycle at Beaufort Community Centre
