  • Some nice walks and the kids enjoyed the gruffalo trail, but I found it poorly sign posted we actually drove past it the first time. The two trails we walked were enjoyable with great flat surfaces for prams but lacked places to stop and rest benches were few and far between. In the whole area we walked around there wasn't a single litter bin to be found which wud explain the litter and bags of dog fouling lying along the side of the path.
  • Really enjoyed our walk up here..not massive, but a nice walk, somewhere you would never expect. The Gruffalo Trail is a big win with the kids..loads of history of the area/forest that is very interesting to read! You can find this information on the dense outside the shop at the entry to the Forrest. There is not much in the shop - a little cafe, but decent fir a quick tea/coffee.
  • Dear oh dear, this place is basically a bit of semi urban scrub land. Better options near Belfast, including cave hill and divis. The all metal Go ape clone is a pretty sad looking affair too
  • Gruffalo trail is great and the kids loved it, only problem is the amount of litter on the path and behind all the houses that back onto it. The toilets at the start were quite grim as well. Tidy that up and it's great.
  • Brought the kids and they thoroughly enjoyed the Gruffalo trail. Paths were nice and clear on our trip with no obviouw rubbish about. Some slight hills, nothing your average person couldn't handle but you might want to be cautious if you have mobility problems. Will deffinately be back in the future for more exploring and a picnic.
