Derrynoyd Forest

Derrynoyd Forest

Located beside the busy rural town of Draperstown, at the foot of the Sperrins, Derrynoid Forest is over 100 hectares of secluded forest woodland. The forest is predominantly a broadleaved forest which was planted since 1948.

The forest was a private residence of Judge Torren after it was built in 1809. The Derrynoyd Centre is present on site, but his facility is now unfortunately closed.

Two walking routes are present on site, one through the mian wooded area and one along the Moyola River. See below for details.
