About this forest

With 34 hectares of mixed woodland, which straddles a valley alongside the Muff River, the forest provides a well used facility for the local residents in Eglinton and surrounding areas.

Muff Glen is predominantly Japanese and hybrid larch, all planted in the 1960s. There are many areas of native broadleaves growing in the less accessible areas.

How to get there

This forest is situated half a mile south of Eglinton on the B118.
