The Dungonnel Way was an initiative led by Glenravel Environmental Improvement Association that has created a 9.5-mile circular walk. Funding for the project was by the Environment and Heritage Service and the Causeway Coast and Glens Heritage Trust (using a NNRTI grant). The route takes in Dungonnell Dam, Glenariff Forest Park and Skerry East Road, which is probably one of the most attractive, but least used roads in the whole of Northern Ireland. It is an outstanding opportunity to experience the isolation of the Antrim Hills without getting your feet wet as the entire length is on hard surface.

The walk can be started at various points on the circuit and walked in either direction. Car parking is available at Dungonnel Dam, in Cargan village, and at the Drum Wood. A way marked route with clear signage at all junctions, the walker is guided smoothly around.
