AboutOne of five lovely walks through Peatlands Park in County Armagh.
Follow the path marked with yellow arrows. Watch out for Cuckoos and birds of prey using the dead pines as lookout posts. Jays are abundant in the woods. Annagarriff Wood is a National Nature Reserve with unique flora and fauna species, many of which are found nowhere else in Northern Ireland. One of the most interesting sites in Annagarriff must be the huge mounds of plant debris up to 1m high and 2-3m across. These hills have been built by Wood Ants and are the only Irish site for this species. The main park gates and the gates at Derryadd Lough are open daily from 9.00am to 9.00pm Easter Sunday until the end of September and from 9.00am to 5.00pm during the winter months. Please check the signs for closing times on your arrival. Admission into the park is FREE all year round. A free Waymarked Route map is available from the Visitor Centre or General Office.
