The site is mixed woodland rising steeply to the summit of Black Mountain (506m) with many kilometres of forest roads and tracks. There are three way marked trails in the forest, the Tain Trail, the Ring of Gullion and the short Ravensdale Loop with a river, bridges, large trees, standing stones and old coach roads. The forest is varied with many species including larch, Douglas fir, large beech and oak and of course Sitka spruce.

Climbing to the top of the Black Mountain takes about 2-3 hours. But it is worthwhile! As a reward you’re going to have a magnificent views.
