  • Great place for hiking. Good parking and decent clear marking of tracks. Quite steep parts and some risk of lose gravel after rains, but a remarkable view.

  • Very peaceful walk. The trees are beautiful in the Autumn. Beautiful walks, short one around the lake and a more challenging one up to the tome. Great facilities with very well kept toilets and baby.....  more

  • Beautiful forest for a dog walk with lovely views from the top. Well sign posted and the car park has toilets and when I visited there was a mobile coffee trailer.

  • Beautiful forest near Augher. It's popular with walkers, runners and mountain bikers. There's a 1.4km lake walk and a 4km hill walk to Anya's tomb. You can walk to Anya's tomb in about 40 minutes from the main car park or about 10 minutes from the upper carpark. The view from Anya's tomb gives a spectacular view of the Clogher valley. Its easy to spend 2 hours in the forest. The main carpark, has disabled parking and toilets. The forest is busy at weekends, but it's much quieter during work days and evenings.
  • Two pleasant walks from the main car park. One a gentle stroll (blue route) and the other a long steep strenuous climb to the Knockmany Passage Tomb (Green route). The view from the tomb is a wide panorama across the countryside and is worth the effort to get to it, particularly on a clear day. If walking up here from the main car park, visitors will need to wear walking shoes and have good mobility. Waymarks seem to have been installed and these are easy enough to follow if you firstly read the information board in the main car park. There are 50 car parking spaces in the well maintained free car park. There are also toilets in the main car park. Picnic benches are also located adjacent to the car park and there are seats and benches scattered along the trails. There was pleasantly little litter and dog fouling was only seen near the main car park. Overall I would recommend this place as somewhere to visit.
  • Knockmany Forest is managed by the Northern Ireland Forest Service. It was one of the earliest state forests in NI. Its a gem of a place with its super sized Douglas firs and Sitka spruce. The bluebell show each May is second to none
  • Lovely walk although a few signpost wouldn't go amiss! Think we done some of the same bits a few times 😏
  • Super walks, suits all levels of walkers, up side tough but worth the view
