Used to be the domain of the British Army and you can see why. Lacks interpretation points but cafe is good. Longer than you think. Very popular. Parking limited

The views are breathtaking and there are a choice of walks, but if going to the summit, beware it is a long trek. Good sturdy footwear is a necessity and I was glad of the bottles of water and snacks we took along with us, although there is a quaint cafe. Check the weather before going, as we got caught...

Stunning views of Belfast and beyond, Great for exercising or just a casual stroll to take in the views, on a good day you can see as far as Newcastle and even Scotland.

Most of the places you go in Belfast, if there is an open space you would see the Black Mountain at western horizon of the Belfast city.

Had a little walk up the Divis and Black Mountain. A great way to blow away the cobwebs. A lovely track that leads to stunning views over Belfast and beyond. On a good day you can see every county in Norn Iron, Scotland and the Lake District. Only 15 mins from the City centre.
