This walk has many steps. The steps meander up and down the sides of this moist valley to enable the walker to get good views of the waterfall. Dogs should be kept under the control of the owner.

  • This is such a charming place and I can’t believe that we did not know of its existence. Th walk up the narrow path up through the glen is superb (although you will definitely need walking boots and moderate fitness as it is steep enough). It is worth calling by though just to stroll over to the waterfall – this is a short level path and you will definitely want to take some photos. We visited in early March – magical greens – lots of mosses and ferns. Birds song added to the atmosphere. A perfect starter to a day in the Antrim glens.
