Route Description for Davagh Forest Path

Featuring shady forest walkways, a diverse range of wildlife, and beautiful views of the surrounding Northern Ireland landscape, the Davagh Forest Path is an excellent walking route that will allow you to relax while experiencing the beauty of nature.

Setting out from the trailhead on Slaght Road, you will make your way to the northwest and head into the cover of the forest, traversing the undulating woodland terrain along a quiet road as you make your way to the OM Dark Sky Park and Observatory. This is a fascinating place where you can experience the beauty of the sky and learn about astronomy, before continuing along the trail on your walk.

From here, you will turn to the southeast and make your way through the forest, climbing gradually uphill on the way to the summit of Beeleevnamore Mountain. After taking in the views of the surrounding landscape, head to the northeast and descend the mountainside, eventually breaking free of the tree cover to arrive back at the trailhead.
