    Route Description for University Trail

    Whether you are after a short walk for some exercise or are taking a quick study break, the University Trail in Coleraine is an excellent way to get out for some fresh air and enjoy nature. This short out-and-back route will lead you around the edge of Ulster University’s campus and expose you to the woodlands and open fields of the surrounding landscape.
