Beautiful peaceful untouched scenery with a variety of paths to suit all. Lovely waterfalls and river winding its way through the countryside. Only downfall is it is quite far away from Derry/Causeway Coast!

Really enjoyed walks around the woods with my son's! Just wish there was better access to see the waterfall as it's difficult to see from the paths.

Great location for walking and hiking. We take our dogs here all the time and they love it! Although some dog owners really do need to keep their dog on their leads

Beautiful scenes, a really lovely walk for summer time with waterfalls and woodland. Easy to find and always relatively quiet, there's generally very few people around.
