    Route Description
    This trail begins at the lower car park and leads up the main drive with the children’s playground on your left. Passing Wilmont House (again on your left), the trail sweeps to the right over the stone bridge towards the gate lodge before turning left to follow the park perimeter. Look out for orchids, speedwells, clovers and hayrattle as you walk through the meadows. Turn left after the concrete bridge to make your way down to the River Lagan where you will turn left again to follow the wide path back towards the lower car park and coffee shop. Terrain: The majority of this trail is compacted gravel (some of which are slightly muddy underfoot) with a short stretch of tarmac. These trails are situated in a woodland environment and may be subject to temporary diversion and closures. In such circumstances, please ensure that all safety signage is complied with. Please keep your dog under control at all times, be considerate of other trail users and always follow the principles of ‘Leave No Trace’.
