Carnneill Park, Waterfoot, Glenariff.
The linear 3km route begins in the village of Waterfoot, Glenariff and follows the Glenariff River along the Glenariff Glen with stunning views of Lurigethan to the North and the Garron Plateau to the South to Greenaghan Cottage on the Glen Road.
The route can be extended by following the Glen Road to Larragh Lodge and accessing the Glenariff Forest Park Waterfall Walks. Glenariff with its magnificent scenery richly deserves its title “Queen of the Glens”. It lies in the heart of the world famous Nine Glens of Antrim, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Glenariff is a perfect U-shaped valley, whose sides are rocky precipices rising to a wild moorland. In the Glen lies one of the most popular forest parks in the country, while at the coast is the golden 1 mile (1.5 km) curve of Waterfoot Beach. The river flowing down the valley is fed by streams which fall hundreds of metres over the cliffs Is it any wonder visitors have been coming for over a century to this jewel of the North?
POINTS OF INTEREST
The landscape of today is the result of the work of generations of farmers whose descendants still use and protect the land. In Glenariff the distinctive pattern of ladder farms running up the valley sides gives each farm an equal share of lowland, glen-side and hill ground. In spring, the lambs wander through acres of bluebells, while later the yellow of the gorse (whins) and the red flowers of the fuchsia are a magnet for photographers.
