Glen Ariff Forest Park offers a variety of walking trails, each with its own particular characteristics. We did the Waterfalls Trail which took us along some amazing paths, banked by ferns and all sorts of wild flowers, including orchids and foxgloves, as well as the...More

Glenariff Park is near the top of Glenariff - the Queen of the Glens, and is easily reached from the coast road or by the inland route from Ballymema. There are many walks through the park but most people come to see the waterfalls which...More

Absolutely beautiful forest park. The waterfalls are stunning, and the picnic area is situated with an incredible view over the forest and looking out towards the coast. A must-see on a good day!

We stopped here and did the waterfall trail. The trail itself is beautiful and well laid out as is the surrounding countryside. We also saw a red squirrel :)

A beautiful easy nature trail approx 3.4km to several waterfalls. The path to firm and well done. Some areas are a bit steep but handrails are along entire path. We also had a great lunch at the lodge at the bottom.

Good views across the Glen towards the coast, and some picturesque walking through the forest, but the best part is the waterfalls walk along some fairly narrow boardwalks. There are a lot of steps though for the less able. Signage could be a lot better...More

Not everybody wants to travel by gas-guzzling air-polluting motor vehicles, and even if they do, some folk want to experience nature from the inside of a tent rather than cocooned in a metal box of one sort or another, as if they were still at...More

We followed the Waterfall & Rainbow Walks on a beautiful sunny day. Really enjoyable and the waterfalls are stunning. Toilets are not the cleanest & none of the interactive activities worked in the centre which was a bit of a shame. But solely for the...More

Both walks do have hills. The waterfall trail is beautiful, it's 1.5miles or so but does have a few steep hills.

I've seen several on the trail, it's all outdoors except for an extremely small structure at the falls.
