General information

Rea's Wood

Reas Wood extends along part of the shore of Lough Neagh. It is a great example of a wet woodland and has a rich diversity of wildlife to see. Keep dogs on leads. The path will eventually form part of the Lough Neagh Cycle Way.


*** Please note that debris and litter deposited on the path after high water levels and extensive flooding during the winter, have now been cleared from the path ***

From the carpark, follow the path into Rea's Wood. Continue to walk through the wood, ignoring all tracks off to the right or left.

After 750m you reach the National Nature Reserve. After a further kilometre, the path reaches an iron gate. This is the southern limit of the Nature Reserve and there is no public access beyond this point.

To finish this short walk, simply retrace your steps back to the Lough Shore Park.

These walks are situated in a working forest environment and may be subject to diversion and closure from time to time.

Up to date information is available on the Forest Service web site - link below.
