Goles Forest Circular Walk
The Goles Forest Circular Walk is a fun journey in the Sperrins AONB of Northern Ireland that will lead you uphill through the forest for views of the valley. While out on the trail, you will cross over the Glenelly River and make your way up the hillside, traversing the woodland terrain while taking in the intermittent views across the Glenelly Valley. This may be a fairly short adventure; however, there is a long and steady incline at the beginning of the walk that will be sure to make you break a sweat!

Route Description for Goles Forest Circular Walk
Featuring a peaceful woodland atmosphere and little in the way of cell service, the Goles Forest Circular Walk is a perfect route if you are looking to disconnect from the outside world. Be sure to wear some proper walking boots in order to combat the sloped forest terrain along the trail.
Setting out from the car park, you will make your way to the southwest in order to cross over the Glenelly River and enter into the dense cover of the forest. Keeping to the left, you will traverse the lower slopes of Carnanelly, before turning to the south to climb up the mountainside.
After reaching the high point of the trail and taking in some beautifully scenic views overlooking the Glenelly Valley, you will continue along the trail axs it bends to the northwest and leads you downhill. Keep on as you descend the forested slopes alongside a small stream, following the path as it turns to the northeast and takes you back over the river on the return to the car park where you began.
