Started my walk at Belfast Castle and walked up the path , which was a good climb in places, and got to McArts Fort, from where the view is splendid. It was a clear, warm and dry day. Very enjoyable walk, and good work out.

We entered the park via Upper Cavehill Road (bus no.61) as the castle and zoo entrances were reportedly blocked. Did a clockwise walk up, the views were stunning. Tips: bring water as there's nothing in the park replenish and stick to the path! We walked...More

Make sure you wear proper foot wear and bring a waterproof. It's a fair trek to the summit. Takes two to five hours depending on fitness level.

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!

Definitely do this on a dry clear day. A bit of a lung buster on the way up if you're unfit like me, following the "green" Fort route. It's way marked occasionally, the paths are in good order, some new steps made with a side...More

Fabulous views of Belfast, the lough and surrounding countryside is the reward for reaching the top of Cavehill. The easy option is to drive to the upper car park and enter the park from there, only one steep climb. A round walk from the car...More

This is an enjoyable walk on the edge of Belfast city. More importantly, if you get up to the top, it affords great views over Belfast city and the whole lagan valley, out to the mouth of Belfast Lough, towns up the northern side of...More
