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.

Glenmore Scenic Walk
This is a strenuous walk and is steep in parts. Also, there are quite big drops down into the river from the path so care has to be taken when walking. Children really must be kept very close because of the drops. It also isn’t a good walk for those with limited mobility or fitness.
Lovely walk at this time of year with the leaves starting to turn and blackberries and hazel nuts in abundance.
Needs care if you have children with you though as some of the paths are narrow with steep drops
I recently was on this route and it is not safe at the moment , as there is quite a big tree blown across the Path and
I see that parts of the path are in need of repair and when I visited this walk before I could have given it a higher rating but not this time
