“Ravenensdale has a beautiful forest walk. You can choose to walk along the forest path or scramble through the many tracks and walking routes through the trees. Great for a place to picnic and bring the family. The weather won't matter if you have the correct gear. A great and lovely outdoor experience. ”

Park
“The forest features riverside walks and an arboretum. There is a two-mile forest drive to panoramic views over Carlingford Lough. There is also a Play Park with children's play area and tennis courts, an Information area and a cafe. The forest drive leads to a car park from where walkers have the opportunity to climb to Cloughmore or 'the big stone', a 30 ton erratic, which sits at approx 1000ft above Rostrevor. Geologists explain its presence here as having being deposited during the ice age. Local Folklore claims it was thrown here by Finn Mac Cool during a fight with a Scottish Giant. During the same battle, the Scottish Giant allegedly tore out a handful of earth and flung it back at Finn, which missed. The earth landed in the sea and became the Isle of Man while the divot he made, filled up with water and became Lough Neagh. Rostrevor Oak wood is a relic of a much larger forest. The woodland contains Oak, Ash, Sycamore, Hazel to name but a few. There are lots of ferns and flowers like wild garlic, primroses and bluebells. The forest is home to jays and squirrels and it hosts a number of rare plants like wood avens and hard shield fern. The Park also hosts exceptional mountain bike trails.”
