The Waterfall Trail is back open now. We inadvertently did both the Viewpoint trail and the Waterfall Trail as the signage and maps are somewhat confusing. We enjoyed both trails. Be aware that the climb back up to the carpark after viewing the falls is somewhat strenuous.

We enjoyed a lovely walk here, intending to walk around the waterfalls on the 2-3 hour route. Unfortunately some of the route was closed off for harvesting reasons, hence the 4 stars. Still, we enjoyed what we saw and the views of the open countryside were spectacular. We stopped for coffee before we left at The Laragh Lodge and that... More

Great views from even the car park along the Glen. This part of the world has just spectacular scenery. Deep valleys, cliffs, forest and waterfalls. Just beautiful. The park has a number of marked walking trails ranging from not very far to half day type things. We took the waterfall loop past a number of beautiful waterfalls. 3 miles ish... More

We walked along the trails marveling at the views. Took many pictures and had lunch on a picnic table at the visitor's centre. If you wanted to, you could spend the day walking trails and snapping pics. Beautiful countryside.

We went to Glenariff Forest Park for a half-day walk. We had planned to do the longer scenic walk but had read in advance that about half of this path is shut due to felling of trees for disease control. Thankfully the diversions were signposted and it's easy enough to combine the various walks as they are mainly loops which... More

There are several trails you can take in Glenariff Forest Park. As we only had about 2 hours there took the Waterfall trail. Its not the most convinient one, there is lot of steps up & down you need to take, but its definetely worth it. Views are stunning and you are so close to the waterfalls that you can... More

This was a pit stop for our 15 day Ireland tour in May. My knee was hurting bad and so I did not get to wander far - but what I saw and what I heard from others - this was a nice walk. I could see one large falls from the parking area but apparently there are three and... More

A lovely day out walking in this beautiful forest park. One of the walks to the waterfalls was closed but their was an alternative, bit of an incline but certainly worth the effort. It was a beautifully sunny day bluebells still out. Make the trip
