Davagh Forest

Ten miles north west of Cookstown, Davagh Forest covers 1,500 hectares. The forest is largely upland coniferous set in the foothills of the Sperrins.


There are a number of mountain bike trails and a walking trail, which have been developed in partnership with Mid Ulster District Council and are managed by them.

There is a circular waymarked trail with fishing stands that takes walkers around Lough Fea and is accessed from the two car parks. This is also managed by Mid Ulster District Council.

While there are no formal trails in Davagh, walkers may use the forest road for leisurely walks. Some of the road network has tarmac. Organised motor rallying events are permitted, provided clubs meet the licensing requirements. For details contact Forest Service.

There may be restrictions on access to parts of the forest from time to time due to forest operations so pay attention to safety signage. 

About this forest

There are two satellite blocks Broughderg and Lough Fea which merge with the Mid Ulster District Council-managed area at Lough Fea on the Cookstown to Draperstown Road.

How to get there

From Davagh, this forest is signposted off the A505 Cookstown to Omagh Road at the Dunnamore turn-off.

From Lough Fea, there is a car park located off the B162 Cookstown to Draperstown Road.
