General information

Ballyboley Forest

Ballyboley has been used my man since early times and there is still remains of a Boley House in the south west corner of the forest which was used when the cattle were brought up the hill for summer grazing. Today it is a good example of multiple land use with its large catchment area supplying water to the surrounding communities and the forest with its 666 hectares growing raw material for the saw mills. The forest was first planted in 1957 and boasts species such as Japanese larch. Waymarked trails run through the forest and the Ulster Way passes through and over the top of Carninard (366m).
