Walked this last week with my parents, 3 small children and a dog. Very wet underfoot but fine with wellys on. The problems with gates mentioned by previous posters seem to have been removed. We had no access problems. We will definitely do this enjoyable walk again when the ground has dried up.

A lovely short walk-totally non-maintained by Cookstown Council-such a shame-nothing has changed since the last comment

This walk is about 15 mins from where I live yet I never knew about it untlil I saw it on here earlier today. It's a pleasant, traffic-free (well apart from a very short road section at the end) walk with some nice if not stunning views. One issue I would flag is that there is an access problem part way along the path. There is a set of two wooden gates which are locked and tied with wire meaning you can't open them. I was able to climb over one and through a fence with barbed wire next to the other. I had my dog with me, who was able to get under one of the gates and jump through the wire next to the other - which wasn't ideal. A little later on (beside the cottage referred to here) there was an old iron gate which was also locked. You could climb up and around the side of it but again this mightn't be ideal for some, especially older or less able people. This is a walk I would like to recommend to my mum for walking our dogs but these access issues are a problem. Just letting you know - perhaps the council/landowners can resolve this issue as it takes away from the walk and also makes you wonder are you even welcome there.
