“Great views when the weather is right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

You can hike up from the car park at the Zoo, which is a reasonably testing up hill climb or access the area by road, with a more gentle incline to the fantastic views of the city and surrounding areas.

“what views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

I went when this first opened up as a newly laid out walk. Now I know it has a little visitors' center that was only being built when we were there. The views are stunning, Belfast looks so small and it's so quiet up there. The walks are not strenous though you can go off the trail easily. Windy yes, but so refreshing - bring a picnic :)
