General information

Reubens Glen

Reuben’s Glen short trail is along a beautiful ancient coach road that once linked the plantation towns of Draperstown and Moneymore in the early 17th Century.


Reuben’s Glen is the last remaining identifiable part of what was once an important thoroughfare between Moneymore and Draperstown. The route follows a small river through a wooded area featuring mature larch trees, with the occasional noble fir, birch and ash. The rest of the route consists mostly of native broadleaves with the occasional Spanish chestnut planted at random. Bluebells and wood sorrel are the dominant ground cover and are a wonderful sight when in full bloom. An abundance of wildlife is also evident.
