Brought residents from a care home and was really impressed by their wheelchair access picnic table and toilet facilities. The views were beautiful with a lot of plants and insects. Facilities were well marked and clean.

Walk here regularly with dog. Peaceful pleasant walk offering varying levels for different walkers. Has a good road to it and small centre, well maintained and worth a visit to see waterfall.

Beautiful peaceful untouched scenery with a variety of paths to suit all. Lovely waterfalls and river winding its way through the countryside. Only downfall is it is quite far away from Derry/Causeway Coast!
