The Country Park is made up of a long strip of riverside natural woodland which runs along the river Roe. It is at its most spectacular as it cuts a narrow gorge underneath the O’Cahans Rock viewpoint. The cliffs and steep slopes have protected the woods from felling in the past and continue to provide a haven for plants and animals today. There is also a wealth of evidence of farming / industrial history with linen greens, mill races and even a preserved pioneering hydro-electric plant from 1896!
The path network is sufficiently complex to support intermediate level orienteering and is also suitable for beginners.
Access and Parking
There are 2 main car parks – the one at the visitor centre which can be accessed from the B68 main Dungiven / Limavady road, via the Dogleap Road and another accessible from Roe Mill Road on the southern edge of Limavady.
