Forest track off road sections
Watch out for gliders soaring over the summit
Park up on Leighry Road (C 703 313) adjacent to a sharp bend. Opposite is a gate leading into the forest, follow this path and take the first track to the left.
Follow this uphill for 1.5 KM, turn right onto forest road and head for the summit of Binevenagh. Pass the west side of the trout stocked artificial lake, then head NW towards the cliff edge.
Panoramic views from the summit stretch for miles. On a good day the north coast is visible, as is Scotland and if the conditions are right gliders from Ulster Gliding Club will fill the skies above.
The surrounding slopes are home to a number of rare alpine plants and birds. Follow the path NW down to the forest, when you arrive at a track turn right and you will soon be back at the start.
Accessed from Leighry Rd bewteen Bishop's Road and Duncrun Rd, just off the Causeway Coastal Route. Park on Leighrey Rd or alternatively follow signs to the summit of Binevenagh.
Refreshments & toilets at Magilligan, Benone or Limavady.
