There are a number of trails through this park and I did the most challenging. It takes about 2 hours and is well worth it for the fabulous views over the City and surrounding countryside.

I've been up Cave Hill many times and always enjoyed it. It's a lovely hike that isn't too demanding, the view is great and it's easy to get there from Belfast city centre. Highly recommended!

Walked Cavehill today with a friend. Decided to go off the beaten track and found ourselves hiking up steep hills in the forest. Great day and the reward at the top was worth every lunge!

Really worth the effort to climb to the top as it has quite breath taking views from the ruins of what once was an old fort, however the path is very very steep in places so be dressed properly and have sensible footwear on, may...More

Great place to go if you are into hiking/mountain walking or looking a walk. Have brought a few groups of young people here for something free to do. Depending on what way you walk it can be easy or hard. The view at the top...More
