When rain and mist covers the High Mournes, this forest park offers a sheltered and yet interesting alternative. Ascend the Glen River as if climbing Slieve Donard or Comadagh, but turn west at J369 299 and subsequently north-west for the forest park. There are several tracks within the park, but the aim is to meet the Shimna River and follow it downriver to Newcastle. There are a wide variety of trees within the park, and we also encountered a wonderful carpet of bluebells. See the ornate stone bridges, the Barbican Gate, the Hermitage structure and Clanbrassil Barn. Trailmaps are available on several websites including walkni.com. We emerged onto Bryansford Road on the return leg of our trip, but the quieter Tullybrannigan Road is an alternative.
