A Walkers Word

Posted on August 6, 2014 @ 2:43 PM in Walking

Northern Ireland is home to so many beautiful and stunning walks.  However here at WalkNI we have to admit we may be a little bit biased, so don’t just take our word for it…take the walkers word!

We’ve compiled a list of walks from WalkNI with the best comments and reviews from people who have been out there, tried the walks and witnessed the views first hand.

If you’re planning to head out walking, whether it be a short lakeside stroll, a dander through the forest or a more challenging mountain summit don’t forget to leave your feedback on WalkNI.com.  Simply go to the individual walk page and scroll down to the bottom to leave a comment.  We’d love to hear from you!  If you took any photos along the way then don’t forget to post them on the WalkNI facebook page.  

Share the good vibes and let’s get more and more people out walking and experiencing these hidden gems, local favourites and not to be missed views from the top!

Hare’s Gap

“A pleasant walk up to Hares Gap featuring changing terrain types. Sensible footwear and clothing a must as the valley can be a natural funnel for high winds and rain. The more adventurous can use this location to explore the surrounding mountains and hills. Fantastic views from the style at Hares Gap entice the hikers lust for more. A great walk for beginners compass and map reading skills. Plenty of features, handrails and catching points to hone those important skills. Suitable for all the family on pleasant days.”
