About this forest

Along with Carrigan, Big Dog, Ballintempo and Lough Navar forests this forest covers an area of over 8,500 hectares and is the largest continuous forest in Northern Ireland. This is predominantly a coniferous forest with large open bogland tracts and wooded gullies.

This forest is included in the UNESCO Marble Arch Global Geopark.

The Correll Glen Nature Reserve lies to the north western edge of this forest and a waymarked trail takes the visitor in to this important example of a remnant upland oakwood. The adjacent area along the Glenasheever Road is a native woodland restoration site.

Organised motor rallying events are permitted in these forests provided clubs meet the  licensing requirements.

How to get there

For Correll Glen follow the Forest Drive signs from the main A46 Enniskillen to Belleek Lough Shore road or from the B52 Garrison to Belleek Road. Entrance is across the road from Lough Navar entrance car park.
