Binevenagh Nature Reserve (Limavady)
Binevenagh Mountain is a nature reserve, formed 60 million years ago by molten lava. The steep cliffs stretching over six miles, overlook Benone Strand with views of Lough Foyle and Donegal on a clear day. The artificial lake on the mountaintop is stocked with rainbow trout.
Binevenagh is about nine miles west of Coleraine and just over three miles south of Magilligan Point in the district of Limavady, County Derry/ Londonderry.
Park on Leighry Road and next to a sharp bend in this road is a gate leading into the forest. Follow this path and take the first track to the left and follow this uphill for almost a mile. Then, turn right on to the forest road and head for the top of Binevenagh Mountain.

- part of the site management is grazing by livestock and ponies so either leave dogs at home or keep them on a lead at all times
