“quiet haven”
Reviewed 31 August 2012

Ness and Every woods, which are connected provide a good but gentle walking experience - more an afternoon out with the kids or the dog that anything more taxing. The odd thing about the place is that there is hardly anyone there. The linked woods follow valley/glade through which flows the Ness river, with a couple of impressive waterfalls. I understand that the idea is to eventually irradicate the non-indigenous species of and trees (goodbye Rhodadendroms). There are a number of picnic tables throughout and a variety of paths althyough I have only rarely seen either in use.

“A walk in the Ness”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

Had a lovely walk in the Ness woods. New walks have been opened and there is now a visitor's centre and clean toilets. Well done. A great outing for the family.

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed 24 July 2012

Lovely , lovely walk,I'm not the fittest of people but still managed the water fall walk easily despite the many steps,there is a much flatter walk for those not so mobile with a good path for wheelchairs/prams. We had a picnic and there were lots of picnic tables was a great place to stop off at on our way to Derry from the Dungiven area were we were staying on holiday

“peaceful spot.”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

Beautiful peaceful spot for a lovely walk. Paths are flat around the centre and and lengths of walk can be suited to individuals. Be aware though that the walk to the water fall is quite steep and the path is not particularly good . Need good walking shoes to attempt it.
