Gortin Glen Forest Park

Gortin Glen Forest Park is situated 6 miles outside Omagh at the western gateway to the Sperrin Mountains. The Park was first opened in 1967 and embraces some 1534 hectares of ground. It has the distinction of being the first to be established in purely coniferous woodland, which was originally planted for the sole purpose of timber production.

A major recreational feature of the forest is the five-mile long drive, which offers some breathtaking views. A number of vista parks have been created where the motorist can pull in and without getting out of the car enjoy the magnificent scenery.

A range of trails starts from the finger post in the main car park. They give the visitor the chance to enjoy the Park’s natural flora and fauna at its best. All the trails are colour coded and return to the car park.
