on Slieve Donard Trail

The way was quite easy to find. By and large, just follow the water. For the first 1.5 km of the trail, surefootedness was required due to previous rainfall. Basically, I recommend for the trail ankle-high hiking boots. The next few kilometers meander up the mountain in a staircase. The last 500 meters are really steep, but doable. It is best to take something to eat with you and then make a picnic with a view up in the lee of the wall.

Went slightly off course at the start, but my fault as I’m stupid and can’t read a simple map! Lovley day for this walk. Sunny with a slight breeze, very windy up on the reservoir though. I’d recommend sturdy shoes for this walk as part of the journey takes you up hill on a narrow path which can be slightly slippery if it’s been raining. Also, watch out for nettles on the upward journey! Excellent views of Silent Valley reservoir from the top of the hill and looking ahead, beautiful view of the sea. Make sure you visit the coffee shop before heading home. Oh by the way. The car park charge is £4.50 and you are given a brochure on the way in. A small charge to spend the morning in such beautiful surroundings.

Wonderful trail! I hiked it very out of shape two years ago, so it was a bit difficult as a day hike. The views were phenomenal and well worth it.

Great trail, beautiful view! The stairs were a bit tough but there were handrails all the way up alongside them.

outstanding coastline.

Great walk, especially early morning or late evening when the river can be particularly peaceful. Portstewart is in Co. Londonderry though not Tyrone!

Great views, nicely maintained. Somehow took a wrong turn and ended up off the main trail but very easy to connect up with one of the many crisscrossing the hill.

Good walk bit mad at the top of the first leg. But all good

Great hike. This route takes you up Binnian first and I recommend doing that. Easier to ascend than descend. Very clear path from the top of Binnian to the bottom. Last 1.5 miles virtually flat. 2 hours 30 solo hike with a few breaks for a cup of tea and to enjoy the views.

It was muddy and no clear paths. However, it was a scenic path and the view at the top was amazing. Don’t forget to bring extra socks and shoes.

A good trek with great views

Path can disappear at times at the North end

Spectacular views. Fairly easy walk. There were some stones steps and rocks to walk on, which could be slippery when wet, but just need to take your time. If you're afraid of heights, like I am, the bridge is a bit scary, but the views make it worth braving.

We actually walked high, avoiding the numbers of tourists and walked for 7 -8 kms then walked back. We normally like loops but an out and back does provide a different perspective on views. We had sunshine which helps but still lovely if wet. Highly recommend and it’s easy.

great and varied trails with spectacular views.

Absolutely fabulous. It is rated as moderate but the last 500 metres plus is quite steep but the views are rewarding. We walked with all ages- from 7 to 75 ang everyone enjoyed the climb. We had a mostly sunny day but it was quite cool at the top (13C). Highly recommend for anyone.

Great experience, really enjoyed although it is officially closed at the moment. However You can still get there.

great trail. Really bad signage. however parts of it were closed due to reconstruction. hoping to come back for another walk soon!

Lovely walk. Noticed dramatic difference in sounds between the sea walk and the river walk. Lovely butterflies and insects in sand dunes.

Didn't find this hard really, very gradual incline. The last bit towards the summit is a bit more steep but nothing crazy. Was very wet and foggy but the path is clearly laid out.

Easy trail to follow & exceptional views
