Springwell Forest

Springwell forest is a predominantly coniferous woodland situated in rolling landscape, between Coleraine and Limavady, overlooking the north coast.


There are no formal recreation facilities. A small, gravelled car park with picnic tables is provided for visitors, just off the main A37 road.

The internal forest road system offers access for walkers and the Ulster Way/North Sperrins Way crosses through the forest. The roads in this forest are maintained for operational use and strong footwear is recommended for the rough gravel surfaces.

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.
