As soon as I stepped foot off the bus I could see the mountains in the background, and I thought I'm climbing that. A few days later I forgot and after strolling round Belfast I found myself closer to the black mountain than I had been so far soooo I proceeded to find my way through the residential/ industrial estates...

This is an easy walk from the car park on the Springfield road, and it shows the city off in all it's splendour. If you are feeling more energetic you can detour and climb Divis. Bring a picnic on a good day and enjoy.

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
