Cave Hill is a relatively easy hike to the top from the car park at Belfast Castle. The summit is reachable in well under two hours, and the views of both Belfast city and the ocean are second to none. An excellent walk for families with children as well.

We were really looking forward to having a nice walk with our dog round the country park but we had to cut our walk short because of the amount of dog owners who didn't and wouldn't put their dogs on a lead even when asked to do so and were arguing with other members of the public about their dogs...

It is a wonderful climb, but well worth it to the top of Cave Hill. It is known locally as Napoleon's Nose as the outline looks as if he is laying down. On a clear day, ie no low cloud, the view is just wonderful, right over the City of Belfast and beyond.
