Activities & Adventure

River, Bluebell & Glen View Trails

Clare Glen can be described as a delightful walk along the banks of the River Cusher in County Armagh. Many of the trees in the wood are multistemmed and the wood may have been managed by coppicing in the past. Hazel is abundant, with oak, ash and wych elm over a stunning ground layer of wood anemone, wild garlic and bluebells, and several different species of orchid (when in season).

There are a number of colour coded waymarked trails within Clare Glen so you can either follow one of these trails or mix and match them. The Glen View Trail (linear, 1.1 miles) is on the eastern side of the Cusher River and gives a birds eye view of the unique landscape of the glen.

 It can be linked with either the River Trail or the Bluebell Trail to form a circular route that is 2.2 miles in length. Care is needed due to steep sections and it is not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs. The River Trail (linear, 1.1 miles) is on the western side of the river, and can be described as a pleasant amble along the rivers edge. Its low gradients are suitable for all levels of fitness including wheelchair and pushchair users. The Bluebell Trail (linear, 1 mile), provides an ideal opportunity to view the steep sides of the glen along with its associated flora and fauna. Care is needed due to steep sections and it is not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs.

Our Customers' Experience

“We stayed at your camp site last week for 4 nights and we just wanted to say that we really, really enjoyed it.  The site was spotless and the staff were in everyday cleaning up the toilets and making sure everything was ok.  Staff were very pleasant and asked how we were getting on etc.  We highly recommend your campsite to everyone we speak to and are really looking forward to another visit soon.  The river walks were beautiful and were great for tiring out the kids before bedtime.  Thank you very much for a very enjoyable stay.  This campsite should be a 5 star site!!!)” Emma & Barry Delahay
