Nature Trail

The Murlough Nature Trail is approximately 2.5 miles long and starts and finishes in the National Trust car park. The trail initially follows the main visitor walkway, Slidderyford Path, to Murlough Beach. After a short walk along the beach one enters the Central Reserve via the Archaeology Path. From here the trail loops back to the car park by way of the Back Track. The trail is marked with yellow-topped posts and has a number of points of interest along it.

Please keep to the paths to avoid disturbance to wildlife and note there may be some access restrictions at certain times of year.

Murlough lies just off the A2, the main Belfast to Newcastle Road, near Dundrum Village grid ref J 410 350 OS 1:50,000 Sheet 4.
