AboutBunkers Hill is a small, recently felled forest at the edge of Castlewellan Town. Developed in October 2014 this short circular trail is suitable for walking and family cycling only and incorporates 3 panoramic viewpoints.
It is complemented by a Natural Play Trail for children aged between 4 and 11 years. The Play Trail is the first of its kind in Castlewellan and is made almost entirely out of natural materials. It includes basket swings, a lookout tower, amphitheatre and seats as well as a bespoke climbing wall.
The walking and family cycling trail starts and finishes at the Play Trail and is fully signposted. Opposite the Play Trail entrance walkers turn right and follow the waymarkers along the trail as it climbs steadily to afford walkers 3 stunning views of Slieve Croob and surrounding countryside, Dundrum Bay and Mourne Mountains. Seating has been provided at various points along the trail for your comfort and to stop and enjoy the views!
