Cregagh Glen and Lisnabreeny, Belfast
A small wooded glen, with steep/very steep paths, on the banks of the Cregagh River, off the Upper Knockbreda Road. Part of it is owned by the National Trust. It forms part of the Connswater Greenway project where it's due to receive new footbridges and improvements to the paths and entrance.
The National Trust also owns Lisnabreeny which it describes as "Lisnabreeny takes in wooded glen, estate and green field to the summit of the Castlereagh hills on the edge of east Belfast. The path hugs the sides of Cregagh glen . . . . Near the top of the glen, pause a moment at the memorial marking a temporary graveyard for American servicemen during the second world war . . . . Futher [sic] up into the hills and open countryside, take in the view from the Mournes to Scrabo. Atop the hill is the rath that gives the area its name, an ancient fortified homestead encircled with trees."
There is a small car park on the Lisnabreeny Road.
