This is our second time visiting the Devil’s Glen. On both occasions we drove the long narrow pot-holed avenue to the carpark, although many cars park at the entrance. To follow the looped walks we think it makes more sense to park in the carpark. There are two loops available to walk – the Waterfall Loop (5km) and the Seamus Heaney Loop (4km). When we’d previously visited during the summertime we’d taken on both loops and the Waterfall loop was by far our favourite of the two. So this time we just did the Waterfall loop. It’s a beautiful riverside walk through the leafy forest that culminates in an impressive waterfall. Throughout the walk there are various sculptures to admire, that were constructed for the “Sculptures in the Woodland” programme in 2001. Autumn is really the time to visit and we marvelled at the warm yellows and golds of the forest as we followed the way-marked path.
