Great walk for families , it takes about an hour to get to the top and the views over Belfast are brilliant. You can hear very distant sounds like an ice cream van at times which can be a bit surreal! Paths are well laid out and safe for walking running or cycling.

Had wanted to climb Divis for years, having eyed it up from a distance as I sat in a works canteen peering up at it from the west of Belfast! Well marked paths and trails we climbed with 3 children to the summit, great views and well maintained paths. Toilets at base and small information centre are currently being adapted... More

Went for a walk today with my sister up the Black Mountain for the first time in years. Very impressed with the selection of routes/trails to choose from, with a beautiful view of the city! I will definitely be walking there to keep fit in the future.

The good thing is the car park in right in the hills, so the walk is pretty flat. The quality of paths is very good and dry.I went today on the walk to Black Mountain. Once on the trail there were no signs but a nice local walker gave me directions. There were no toliets either, yet their website said... More

Black Mountain provides some great views over Belfast, but for those looking for a good hike then you would be disappointed. the trail actually starts on upper reaches of the mountain.There maybe a trail for the base of the mountain, which would provide more of an aerobic workout.

It is a real find and you could truly be in the middle of nowhere, but is only about 10 minutes driving until you are back in the city. The carparking is free. It would be a great place for cycling as the... More

This is a nice stroll for most able people and the views of the city are fantastic. You have a car park which is a nation trust one. I didn't see any chargers for non members so presume its free to all. The mountain is good for walkers and bikers alike, please be aware it can be very windy at... More
