About

Rising to the east on the slopes of Divis Mountain, the Crumlin River has carved a short but deep glen here as it approaches the waters of Lough Neagh.

J154765

Finish Point:

Route:
To start this short walk, follow the path at the far (west) end of the car park over a footbridge and uphill where you then turn left. The walk passes through some beautiful woods, and then you soon turn left and follow the sign down to the Cockle House. Then, continue down to the riverbank and follow the path along its side. You soon reach a footbridge over the river to your left. Cross it and follow the path leading away from the river. This section of path leads to the Cidercourt Road. Turn right here, crossing Cidercourt Road almost immediately to join a public right of way leading to Main Street. Turn left onto Main Street and then left again onto Mill Road, and proceed back to the starting point.
