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.

If you want to get out into the coutry side for a bit while in Belfast, then look no further than a trip up to the Black Hills. I approached it two different ways on two different days - the better way being going up Falls Road (where you can enjoy the many murals on the walls along the way).... More

Nice easy walk just outside the city where you'll be rewarded with some great views over Belfast assuming the weather is kind. Luckily it was the day I was there!

It is a bit of a climb but when you get to the top you get some of the most awesome views of Belfast. Well worth the climb :)

The views of the city, the easy access of walking from the main road, the colours of the Autumn and Winter in the grasses and rushes, the efforts of many volunteers and staff to make this one of the countryside highlights of a visit to Belfast
