    Route Description for Carnmoney Hill Wood Walk

    Featuring an expansive woodland setting with laid back paths and stunning viewpoints, the Carnmoney Hill Wood Walk is an exceptional walking route in the Belfast area that will provide you with a spot of exercise and some amazing scenery.

    Setting out from the trailhead, you will make your way to the northwest and pass by a small pond on your left, before traversing the charming forest terrain to the southwest. Climbing uphill, you will make your way past a Victorian well and keep right along the trail in order to eventually escape the cover of the forest for some amazing views of Belfast Lough.

    From here, you will continue on to the south and enter back into the forest, descending the hillside until you arrive at the southwest corner of the route. At this point, you will backtrack and climb uphill, working your way through the lower slopes of Carnmoney Hill until you arrive back at the trailhead where you started.
