Banagher Forest

This is a large coniferous forest mostly planted with sitka spruce on the peat covered slopes. Broadleaves and larches have been planted in the richer alluvium soils in the valleys.


There are no way marked routes but the forest roads and paths provide access along the Glenedra Glen and the Altnaheglish River, and along the north shore of the Altnaheglish Reservoir.

It is possible to do a round trip of nine miles linking the two glens through the Banagher Glen Nature Reserve.

To arrange a special event or activity in this forest, such as sporting events or educational visits, contact the recreation manager at the Enniskillen Forest Office.

Occasionally there may be restricted access for forest works so pay attention to safety signage.

How to get there

The forest can be accessed from the B40 Draperstown to Feeney Road, about five miles north of Moneyneaney village.
