“Great Scenery, & Refreshing Climb”

Great scenery, and refreshing climb. This is a great day out for just about any particular individual, though i would not recommend babies or dogs on the higher slopes of the mountain areas. The surrounding park is ideal for dogs and families. For the thrill and adventure seeker you can climb to the top of the mountain and take in the stunning views of Belfast, the Isle of Man and the coast of Scotland. Parts of the mountain are unsafe so caution is advised, bring hiking boots.

It is a nice place to visit when the weather is good, There are several paths to go up so you can enjoy it in different ways. The view from top is amazing and you can see the coast and Belfast. It is also worth visiting when it gets dark to see the city. The walk is not too strenuous and you don't have to be very fit to get to the top. It can be very windy so I would advise being careful as you can be blown off the edge:)

We’re lucky to live close by, so we’re here at least once a month. Most people park near Belfast Castle (really a very large turreted mansion). From here you can just potter around the castle & cat garden, go for walks through the surrounding woods, or spend 1.5 hours going up to the summit of Cave Hill and back. Most Saturdays there will be a wedding at the castle, so you’ll need to park along the approach road. All walking trails are easy to follow, nice scenery, and you can easily see Scotland from the top if it’s not too cloudy. There is also a small car park along the Upper Hightown Road that is closer to the top, reaching the summit from here only takes about 20 mins of significant uphill walking along a firm trail.
