Grange Park Forest

Windyhill Road leading to Grange Park Forest, is also known as the 'Murderhole Road' in recollection of the reputed activities by highwaymen who frequented the area in the 17th and 18th centuries.


The Ulster Way/North Sperrins Way passes through the forest. There are no recreation facilities or parking areas for casual visitors.

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

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.
