Some of the walks described in “Grand Day Out” may be appropriate for you as daily local exercise. Please use the maps and modify the routes to avoid hot-spots or places where the paths are too narrow. Turn back if unsure, practice social distancing and step off paths if they are narrow when passing others.
Do not over-stretch yourself physically or explore beyond your comfort zone.

The new network Garvagh Mountain Bike Trails have now been officially launched (June 2019). Unfortunately all the though-forest trails are for Mountain Bike use only and there is no new forest trail provision for walkers who are expected to confine themselves to the existing network of forest roads (as shown above). On the plus sign new waymarks have been provided for walkers on the forest roads so it will make it easier for visitors without a map to find their way.
The new mountain bike facility looks very exciting, but it is sad that an opportunity to provide forest access for walkers has been missed.
For details see the Garvagh Forest Page on the Visit Causeway Coast and Glens Website.
