Start at sizeable carpark and follow Antrim Hills Way up the lawn of the hillside.

Markers show the way and stiles abound -after the first strike off to follow the scarp line for the prominent headland of Knock Dhu. Views abound over Ballygalley and Larne to the Scottish coast and Isle of Man and south past Cavehill to the peaks of the Mournes.

The sweeping cliffs of Sallagh Braes follow shortly and are a stirring sight. Buzzards and ravens floated below and the sharp calls directing sheepdogs drifted up on the breeze. Crumbling rockfaces collected scree below. A stonewall brought the waymarked Way again, which follows the sweep of most of Sallagh on ground good enough to be used by mountainbikers.

The Antrim Hills Way heads off over the moorland past a stone enclosure to reach a stile and fence. Follow the fence uphill over rougher ground and follow this back north - worthwhile for the pools with frogspawn and the flash of white underbelly of a hare. Great views of the steep face of Agnews Hill and over to the steep profile of Slemish and distant Sperrins.

Rejoin the Antrim Hills Way and easier going and fllow easily back to the carpark. A lone runner and two mountainbikers all that were up here today!
