Route:
From the car park at the Long Barn, (Note National Trust car park pricing applies for this car park however there is an alternative free car park on Divis Rd 0.5 miles from the Long Barn which can also be used by walkers), follow the trail towards the Divis transmitter masts. Bear right onto a section of boardwalk, shortly before reaching the lower mast. The boardwalk ends, turn right onto the gravel path, leading towards the summit of Black Mountain, the summit of which is marked by a trig point. From here you can experience exhilarating views across the city and beyond. Continue to follow the gravel path as it winds its way along the ridge towards Black Hill. The path leaves the ridge before reaching Black Hill and continues to weave its way back towards the Long Barn, crossing a couple of stiles and the Collin River along the way. Turn left when you reach the access road to return to the Long Barn.
