  • Brilliant concreted path along the river walk section and then continuing through the country side on a tarmac path.

    Would highly recommend this looped walk.

    Another spot to park is Opposite Galgorm Industrial Estate Fenaghy Road, Galgorm County Antrim BT42 1PY

  • Pretty poor walk, basically a loop around a small industrial estate – which you can see directly beside the path almost the entire way. Can hear cars much of the time also, no nice views, slightly redeeming is the short riverside walk at end – but even that one has the industrial buildings looming directly on the other side of the river!
