This is a peaceful and lovely part of Antrim. The walk meanders along river and through woodland. Depending on the time of year the smell of wild garlic is amazing. You can exercise both the body and soul on this trail!

If you are in the Antrim area and would like some time alone with your thoughts, a tranquil river with only local wildlife to distract you, then the Mill Race is the place for you.

Nice Walk on a Nice Day This is a really nice stroll in better weather, would be good if the local Council could repair the 5th bridge and a little more maintenence and litter picking would not go amiss.

This walk is one of the most picturesque walks in the area with a beautiful river and weir. Very popular with dog walkers but generally quiet with good parking facilities.

This is in essence a pleasant river walk with interest. The river is Six Mile Water and starting points include where the river meets lough neagh. Dangers include the Hog Weed which can be seen growing close to river and should not be touched.
