Beautiful walk

Such a beautiful walk up to the top of cave hill. So much greenery and fresh air about. It's really relaxing and then you're rewarded up the top with a wonderful view!

Wonderful, easily accessible location for a healthy walk which combines fresh air, nature, geology, archaeology, history and breathtaking views. Obviously more pleasant on a dry, sunny day, but if properly clothed, perfect at any time of year.

There is nothing special to see there. The cave itself is full of litter because teenagers supposedly use it as a hideout. In the summer they sometimes cause wildfires up there

If the weather is good and you have plenty of time on your hands then you should visit the Cavehill Country Park. It is a beautiful walk/climb which takes you past Belfast Castle to the top of the mountain where you have a marvellous view over Belfast and surrounding area. You have a number of trails to follow, some longer... More

I live quite close to Cavehill Country Park and never get tired of it. When you make the steep journey up you get the most wonderful view of Belfast. Well worth the trip!!

TIts quite a climb up cave hill, not for the very unfit or unsteady on feet. During winter it can be muddy and slippery, but great for kids, dogs, joggers. A valuable resource!

We visited and hiked the trails here. If we go back to Belfast, we would come again. We did not make it to the castle, as our time was somewhat limited, but we did make it up to the top for the beautiful view and over the cave to check it out briefly. There are loads of paths and trails,... More

Took about 2 and a half hours to do the full circuit. Steep climb to the top but worth it for the views of Belfast and the surrounding area. Path well maintained.

First place i went to on my trip round Belfast. It was nice to be able to view the whole city from up high before heading into town. The views were great, but the weather closed in so we headed down to the castle for a nice warming cuppa.

Went for an invigorating walk here. The views were fantastic but I will bring gloves and a bin bag the next time. Dog walkers have left black bags hanging on trees and rubbish along the walk particularly at the view point. There are no bins along the route but shame on you dog walkers and shame on the Belfast Council... More
