Ballypatrick Forest

Walking Route
A mature forest with a car park, toilets, waymarked walk and a picnic site just beside the Causeway Coastal Route. A 5 mile drive, open all summer and weekends from Easter to October, meanders through upland forest and open areas to give many fine views of Rathlin Island and Ballycastle.

A feature unique to Ballypatrick is the fine "Irish Ford" where the Drive and the stream become one! A variety of riverside and viewpoint picnic sites and short walks are laid out along the Drive, as is the Dual Court or Double-Horned Tomb which dates from 5-6000 years ago.

A waymarked Wildlife Trail leads from the Horseshoe car park past deer lawns and fenced wildlife ponds, offering a chance to catch a glimpse of the resident deer, ducks and dippers as well as geese and otters along the Glenmakeeran River.
