The hike up from Belfast Castle is not actually that bad; there are plenty of well defined footpaths and the view from the top is worth the effort.

Such a beautiful walk up to the top of cave hill. So much greenery and fresh air about. It's really relaxing and then you're rewarded up the top with a wonderful view!

Wonderful, easily accessible location for a healthy walk which combines fresh air, nature, geology, archaeology, history and breathtaking views. Obviously more pleasant on a dry, sunny day, but if properly clothed, perfect at any time of year.

There is nothing special to see there. The cave itself is full of litter because teenagers supposedly use it as a hideout. In the summer they sometimes cause wildfires up there

I live quite close to Cavehill Country Park and never get tired of it. When you make the steep journey up you get the most wonderful view of Belfast. Well worth the trip!!

While doable, I don't think it is worth the headache. It's a steep walk and not always smooth underfoot. Sturdy shoes, drinking water, and back up waterproofs if the weather changes is what you should be considering.
