    Directions to Trailhead

    The Glenarm River Path is an easy-going adventure in County Antrim, Northern Ireland that will take you through a lovely woodland setting within the Glenarm Forest Park. While out on the trail, you will make your way under the shady canopy of the trees and make the return leg alongside the banks of the Glenarm River. Easy to traverse terrain along the route makes it suitable for families; however, the un-surfaced paths can be quite muddy after a good period of rainfall.

    Route Description for Glenarm River Path

    If you are looking for a relaxing walk in County Antrim that will expose you to the natural beauty of the forests of Northern Ireland, then you will want to explore the woodland trails along the Glenarm River Path.

    Setting out from the car park, you will make your way to the southwest and keep left at the initial fork in order to traverse the forested hillside. Here, you will meander through the atmospheric woodland setting and enjoy views of the mature trees, before arriving at the southwest corner of the route.

    Descending the hillside slightly, you will follow the path as it heads to the northeast and continues through the forest. Eventually, you will meet up with the winding banks of the Glenarm River and follow them back to the car park where you began your adventure.
