Lovely walk with great views, runnable circular trail, up above the trees of the forest. Challenging start as it climbs but it then levels out. Make the most of an early, sleepy Sunday for a quiet walk as this popular area can get busy at weekends, especially. The trail is marked out well. There are plenty of streams for dogs to drink along the way too.Show more

This loop follows red arrows on tarmac and forestry roads, grassy track and mountain paths with one rough section which can be boggy and wet in places. There are some ascents and descents with the initial ascent very steep while the others are more gradual. The loop goes through forest, with two sections along forest edge and some open mountain. The views are stunning, along the coast to the north and south, across Carlingford Lough to the Mourne Mountains while in good conditions the Isle of Man is visible.Show more

Easy trails with great views, and some hidden side paths which offer a larger variety of terrain. Note: pay attention to signs where dogs are not allowed, as free roaming sheep are in those areas, and farmers, being protective of their sheep, take loose dogs very seriously, especially during lambing season. Dogs are not allowed on this mountain at all.Show more
