Gortin Glen Forest Park

A range of waymarked trails start from the finger post in the main car park. They give the visitor the chance to enjoy the Park’s natural flora and fauna at its best. All the trails are colour coded and return to the car park.

People with mobility difficulties will love the five mile long drive with breath-taking views. As well as walking, visitors can mountain bike and horse ride in the area, although a permit is required for horse riding. Orienteering trails can be devised to suit all ages and abilities. There are also camping and BBQ facilities on site.

A brand new play sculpture has also been recently installed. Inspired by its natural surroundings, the new wooden sculpture is sure to fascinate the kids with plenty of opportunities for exploration and play.

Standing four metres tall, the carved sculpture is composed entirely of Larch, Red Cedar, and Oak with the centrepiece, a family of Red Deer, chosen specifically to reflect the importance of the Forest Park’s relationship with its much loved inhabitants.

With the centrepiece surrounded by a wheelchair-friendly boardwalk, bridge and auditorium, each element of this play sculpture is designed to allow for exploration at differing heights, mirroring the steep topography of the Forest Park’s own natural landscape.  

Visitors can find the play sculpture across the stream from the main car park in Gortin Glen Forest Park.
