Binevenagh Mountain is one of the most distinctive headlands along the Causeway Coast. This short walk along forest road and through coniferous forest with a steep section leading to the cliffs of Binevenagh offers panoramic views over Lough Foyle, the Roe Valley, Inishowen and to the west coast of Scotland. Extended routes are available.

Park up on Leighry Road (C 703 313) adjacent to a sharp bend. Opposite is a gate leading into the forest, follow this path and take the first track to the left. Follow this uphill for 1.5 KM, turn right onto forest road and head for the summit of Binevenagh. Pass the east side of the trout stocked artificial lake, then head NW towards the cliff edge.

Panoramic views from the summit stretch for miles. On a good day you'll be rewarded with views to Inishowen and the Causeway Coast as far as Knocklayd at Ballycastle and beyond to the Scottish isles of Islay and Jura. If the conditions are right gliders from Ulster Gliding Club will fill the skies above not to mention the bird life soaringoff the cliffs.. The surrounding slopes are home to a number of rare alpine plants and birds. Follow the path NW down to the forest, when you arrive at a track turn right and you will soon be back at the start.
