    Route Description

    The Beech Walk leads you through the avenue of Beech trees replanted in 1984, only one of the original beech trees remains at the beginning of the Beech Walk, and is approximately 300 years old. The walk leads up to the tower, built in 1731, which was once a corn mill. From the tower views of the Sperrins and Slieve Gallion can be enjoyed on a clear day. The beech trees provide stunning colour throughout the year, from vivid green in the spring to rich reds in the autumn.

    The Sawpit Hill Walk can be incorportated into this walk to extend the route.
