Easy but satisfying hill
by Aidy  10 Jan 2014
Nice to see Cave Hill, also known as Ben Madigan, making it on to the list. I climbed this in September 2013 on a hot, sunny afternoon from the car park at Belfast Castle. There were clear paths from here through the woods to the foot of the cliffs where the caves can be seen. I continued walking, bearing North of the cliffs, still on clear, well used paths which gave an easy route to the summit and McArt's Fort. There are expansive views from the top over Belfast, and I could make out Scrabo Tower and the Mournes through the haze. I continued Southwards along the top of the cliffs taking me on a circular route down the other end of the hill, through the woods and back to Belfast Castle. There was a multitude of paths in this part of the woods and it did get a bit confusing, but you almost inevitably reach the road to the castle at some point. Fortunately, there are plenty of hikers, dog walkers, joggers etc. around for directions if you're stuck, at least there were in the fine weather that day. Definitely worth a climb and inclusion here. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1083/comment/15769/
