Great walks. Well kept. Very popular with locals and visitors alike. Good car parks so easy access from different entrances. Great view all over Belfast when you get to the top.

Great scenery, and refreshing climb. This is a great day out for just about any particular individual, though i would not recommend babies or dogs on the higher slopes of the mountain areas. The surrounding park is ideal for dogs and families. For the thrill...More

We’re lucky to live close by, so we’re here at least once a month. Most people park near Belfast Castle (really a very large turreted mansion). From here you can just potter around the castle & cat garden, go for walks through the surrounding woods,...More

Went out and walked the Cave Hill trail - a bit challenging but enjoyable for the views over Belfast. Was a bit muddy but manageable in regular shoes, but raingear advised.

This is a steep climb from the castle car park but the views over Belfast are amazing! I walked to the start of the "Belfast Hills" but would love to complete the walk some day.

Start at the Belfast Castle and wind your way around Cave Hill. A birds-eye view of Belfast and surrounding areas, even a quick peak into the zoo from above. Not for those wanting a very gentle quick stroll - but a great walk for those...More

While doable, I don't think it is worth the headache. It's a steep walk and not always smooth underfoot. Sturdy shoes, drinking water, and back up waterproofs if the weather changes is what you should be considering.
