Gortin Glen Forest Park is located six miles north of Omagh off the B48 road towards Gortin village at the western gateway to the Sperrin mountains.

The Forest is owned by Forest Service NI with the play park and trails maintained by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council.

The International Appalachian Trail / Ulster Way pass through part of the forest.  A major recreational feature of the forest is the Destination Play Park (opened August 2019). In addition to the walking trails there is also a five mile long scenic drive which offers some magnificent views of County Tyrone. A number of vista lay-bys have been created where the motorist can pull in to enjoy the spectacular scenery.

A range of trails give the visitor a chance to enjoy the Park at its best. All the trails are colour coded and return to the car park.

Other facilities onsite include, toilets, Picnic Tables and a BBQ area.

Furth north of the Forest Park are the Gortin Lakes offering a short walk around these kettle hole lakes with superb vistas of the Sperrin Mountains to the north.

 

Opening times: 24 hours
