West Tyrone Ramblers. Ness Country Park. C walk. Saturday 25 June 2016.

Tony and Anne McGarvey 02882243993

On Saturday 25 June 2016, the C walk is through Ness Country Park, Ervey Wood and Burntollet Wood, a gentle six mile route.

Starting at the Visitor Centre at Ness Country Park the walk meanders along the Burntollet River through an Area of Special Scientific Interest among ancient oak trees, habitat to many species of wild life and bird life. The path leads into Ervey Woods, also an Area of Special Scientific Interest, following the river through Burntollet Glen and on into Burntollet Wood. The area is managed by the NI Environmental Agency and the Woodland Trust has been recently planted 43,000 trees in Burntollet Wood. The young oaks, adder, ash and wild cherry trees link with the ancient oak woodlands of Ness and Ervey to provide a wildlife sanctuary in the Burntollet valley. At this time of year, the displays of wild flowers and grasses make this walk both interesting and enjoyable.

Refreshments are booked in the Belfray Country Inn after the walk.

We will be home by five , so in time for the football.


Our last ramble was on Sunday June 19th to Farscallops , Glenveagh in County Donegal . Photos on this page from this outing.


The latest edition of the Ulster Federation of Ramblers Newsletter is now on our Noticeboard page
