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. These 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. It 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 allowed, if clubs meet the licensing rules. For details contact Forest Service.
There may be restrictions on access to parts of the forest from time to time due to forest operations. Pay attention to safety signage.
