The walk can be accessed from two car parks, but starts and finishes in the car park on Bockets Road.
From the car park, go through the kissing gate and follow the path slightly uphill towards the glen. It is is a circular route and can be done in either direction. The walk described here follows an anti-clockwise direction.
Turn right and cross over the bridge, following the path through the glen. The wide unsurfaced path leads steeply uphill for approximately 10 minutes until it meets a junction signed to a viewpoint on the right.
For a short detour, follow the path uphill to the viewpoint where a wooden shelter with seating offers a chance to pause and view the surrounding countryside. Head back downhill to the main path.
Continue along this path until reaching the top car park on Tullyavern Road.
The path continues down the glen back to the bridge crossed at the start. From here retrace your steps back to the car park. The walk takes around 45 minutes to complete.
Views from lookout, pretty glen
Follow the brown tourist signs off the main Dungannon to Ballygawley Rd (A4). The car parks are approx. 1 and 3 miles from the main road.
