. The area has been classified as an Area of Natural Beauty (AONB). The Bishops Road runs along the mountain and leads you to one of the best-known tourist attractions associated with the area, Mussenden Temple. The temple itself sits on top of the Downhill Strand.
Park up on Leighery Road (C 703 313) adjacent to a sharp bend. Opposite is a gate leading into the forest, follow this path and take the first track to the left.
Follow this uphill for 1.5 KM, turn right onto forest road and head for the summit of Binevenagh. Pass the west side of the trout stocked artificial lake, then head NW towards the cliff edge.
Panoramic views from the summit stretch for miles. On a good day, the north coast is visible, as is Scotland and if the conditions are right gliders from Ulster Gliding Club will fill the skies above.
The surrounding slopes are home to a number of rare alpine plants and birds. Follow the path NW down to the forest, when you arrive at a track turn right and you will soon be back at the start.
