Northern Ireland Sights

Castlewellan Forest Park

  • Trail/Path

Fodor's Review

New signposted mountain-biking trails, ranging from short routes of 4 km (2½ miles) up to 19 km (12 miles), and 7½ km (5 miles) of walking trails were added to Castlewellan Forest Park in 2014. A huge maze, grown to symbolize Northern Ireland's convoluted path to peace, comprises 1,150 acres of forested hills running between the Mourne Mountains and Slieve Croob. With the maze, lake, secluded arbors, and arboretum, the park makes an excellent introduction to the area. Bike rental is available at the center starting from £17 for three hours.
