The trail is on ramparts through an extensive area of low lying peat. The site is very natural and unspoilt.

  • 11.7.21 – Just home from this walk. Information board on entering was very interesting but graffiti on both it and the main entry sign was disappointing to see. As others have commented there is some dog fouling but the majority of the pathways were clean. I did manage to get lost and ended up going round in a circle as signs weren’t as clear as they could have been. I might still be there if I hadn’t followed a family out. Lovely wild flowers, butterflies and dragonflies. The walkways in need of a bit of clearing at certain parts as nettles were threatening to take over, but all in all a lovely time spent there.

  • Walked this route in Springtime and walking shoes have to be worn because it is very boggy along most of the embankments.
    The red route is well marked and easy to follow. There are also some other branches off the red route that can be explored.
    Birds such as robins and grey herons can be seen.
    Sadly the dog fouling problem has not improved since the last review and is very bad over the first part of the walk.

  • I went to Brackagh yesterday with a friend and because the Nettles and Ferns were that Long and High we didn’t get on our usual walk,it would really need better looked after also you have to watch were you walk as on the main path all you see is Dog Fouling,i wish someone would please cut the paths and keep it free from heavy growth and something needs done about the Dog Fouling.Also it would be nice to see a Seat along the main Paths.
