A short but rewarding climb
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  27 Jan 2014
This route lies within Cave Hill Country Park and follows in the main good gravel or grass tracks. Start from a small car park just before Belfast Castle J330791 A and climb up the path on the left . At a junction go right and continue up through the trees bearing left at any further junctions to gain an open flat area with fine views down over Belfast Lough. Continuing on take the next path to the left and go clockwise around a steep-sided depression and passing below the largest cave . Climb steadily up to a cattle grid and fence and take the path going left. This leads up to the top of the hill and a large steep sided promontory dominating the view ahead. Though not the top of the hill this is the site of a former ancient defensive fort. At the point where the path passes a track going up left to the promontory, site of Mc Art's Fort, turn directly right of the main track and go WNW up a narrow but well defined rough path to the high point of the hill some 100 metres along and marked by a small but ancient cairn. On the way back down be sure to visit Mc Art's Fort for splendid views down over Belfast and, in good visability, out across County Dowm to the distant Mournes and Slieve Gullion.
