Cave Hill County Park

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Over the past year, we’ve been busy working with our partners on a range of improvements to enhance Cave Hill Country Park, making it safer, more accessible and creating more ecologically diverse parkland. This includes working with Cavehill Mountainbike Club (CMC) to agree and test a new pilot approach for ‘The Middle’ trail within the County Park with the support of Outdoor Recreation NI.

Following some works to the trail, including the erection of new safety signage, ‘The Middle’ will formally open for public use late April. The pilot will help us try out new arrangements for the maintenance, management and inspection of the mountain bike trail over the next two years.

PLEASE NOTE - WORKS ON 'THE MIDDLE' WILL BE COMPLETE BY MID JUNE 2022. AND ONLY AT THIS TIME WILL BE READY FOR USE.

Where will 'The Middle' trail be located?

The location of 'The Middle' mountain bike trail is shown in the map below (the purple line on the key). It will be marked by signs to ensure the safety of all users of the country park.

Consultation

Belfast City Council are keen to hear views on what improvements users would like to see in Cave Hill Country Park in the future - and you could help us by completing the survey below. (Once 'The Middle' opens in May the survey will be expanded to also seeking views on Moutainbiking and 'The Middle' trail).
