About

This is an optional detour along the very popular Waterfall Walk through Glenariff Forest Park.

Start Point:
D210202

Route:
This is a detour section sign posted from the Waterfall Walk. It includes crossing the Rainbow Bridge and taking a path along the banks of the Glenariff River. Many varieties of woodland flowers such as lesser celandine, wood sorrel, bluebell and wood anemone can be seen in the spring time. The trail then turns deeper into the mature broadleaved woodland before it brings you back to the river. The trail crosses over the Rainbow Bridge again to rejoin the Waterfall Walk. These walks are situated in a working forest environment and may be subject to diversion and closure from time to time.
