The true definition of a hidden gem, Davagh Forest lies approximately 6 miles north west of Cookstown in an untouched rural landscape of rolling hills and sweeping forests. In an attempt to unlock Davagh’s unique potential as a recreational hub, Cookstown District Council has recently launched a brand new network of walking and mountain biking trails which is set to put this forgotten forest back on the map.

Route

Davagh Forest’s short circular walk begins from the upper car park and follows the black waymarker arrows alongside Davagh Water.

This pleasant riverside path meanders through lush green, almost fluorescent, woodland before crossing over Davagh Water and gradually ascending to meet the main forest road. Look out for the red tint of the river when crossing the newly constructed footbridge.

The return leg of this walk uses the wide, surfaced forest road which leads down to meet the car park and back to the start of the trail.
