Colin Glen Forest Park
An attractive feature is the brown-green mountain range that dominates its skyline, running from the Cave Hill in the north to the Black Mountain that stands proud over the whole of West Belfast. At the foot of the Black Mountain is the Colin Glen Forest Park, so if you feel like getting close to nature without leaving the city limits this is a good place to start with. You can find out more about the park and its environs in the visitors' center which has some excellent audio-visual displays. Many of the paths are wheelchair friendly.
