Gortin Glen Walks and MTB Trails
This expansive area of woodland near Omagh includes miles of good footpaths and mountain bike trails.
For walkers there's a series of colour coded waymarked paths to try from the main car park. Cyclists can enjoy moderate blue trails and more challenging red trails.
On the way there are streams, waterfalls, lots of wildlife and some fine views towards the nearby Sperrin Mountains.
Look out for fauna including deer and various woodland birds.
To continue your walking in the Sperrins area head east to visit Davagh Forest. There's nice river walks and an exhilarating red graded mountain bike trail to try here.

As you'd imagine the woodland trails are ideals for dog walking. A lead is required on the Mullaghcarn Trail due to livestock grazing next to the trail.
