While Ballykelly is a small forest, it has a complex network of tracks and small paths running through a diverse patchwork of forest types. Around the periphery there is a band of naturally regenerating traditional mixed forest with the core being comprising of blocks of coniferous plantation. This central area has matured well in recent years and now offers a good degree of runnability. Visibility varies, particularly in the natural forest area where Holly bushes etc. make straight line running difficult and careful compass work will pay dividends.
The area is used by mountain bikers who have contributed to the path network and provide a number of rough bridges across ditches – these should always be treated with caution.
Lunch and NWOC AGM
The event will be followed by a Carvery lunch at the Drummond Hotel, Ballykelly starting from 1pm (main course £6.95). All club members and visitors very welcome.
The NWOC AGM will be held after the meal at approximately 2:30pm.
