Woodburn Forest

5 miles (8 km)

This circular walk explores the Woodburn Forest and its reservoirs in Carrickfergus, County Antrim.
You can start the walk from the Woodburn Forest Lower Car Park at the eastern side of the site. Then follow footpaths heading west to visit the waterfall near the Lower Reservoir. There's some nice waterside paths and good woodland trails to the north of the lakes as well.

Dog Walking

As you'd expect the woodland trails are ideal for dog walking so you'll probably bump into other owners on your visit.

Further Information and Other Local Ideas

Head north and you could visit the Blackhead Lighthouse. There's some fine coastal trails around the lighthouse with views over the Belfast Lough. The popular and dramatic Gobbins Cliff Path can also be picked up in this area.
To the south west there's Cave Hill Country Park to explore.
