Forest walks on the eastern bank of the River Bann, in the vicinity of Mountsandel Fort. A mesolithic site, the earliest known settlement site of man in Ireland. Choice of high level route or low level riverside route.
Gravelled forest paths
Mountsandel Fort and mesolithic site
Within the wood there are basically two linear paths, one along the top of the slope and the other at the foot of the slope, partly following the line of the River Bann. Walkers can combine the two paths to form a circular route, or make use of the steps at the Fort to create alternative routes.
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.
Both entrances to Mountsandel Wood are off Mountsandel Road, to the south of Coleraine town centre, towards the outskirts of town.
Refreshments and toilets available in Coleraine.
