Great place for hiking. Good parking and decent clear marking of tracks. Quite steep parts and some risk of lose gravel after rains, but a remarkable view.

Very peaceful walk. The trees are beautiful in the Autumn. Beautiful walks, short one around the lake and a more challenging one up to the tome. Great facilities with very well kept toilets and baby changing facilities. The Coffee Cart, at the weekends, is also excellent. Definitely worth a visit

Beautiful forest for a dog walk with lovely views from the top. Well sign posted and the car park has toilets and when I visited there was a mobile coffee trailer.

Two pleasant walks from the main car park. One a gentle stroll (blue route) and the other a long steep strenuous climb to the Knockmany Passage Tomb (Green route).
The view from the tomb is a wide panorama across the countryside and is worth the effort to get to it, particularly on a clear day.
If walking up here from the main car park, visitors will need to wear walking shoes and have good mobility.
Waymarks seem to have been installed and these are easy enough to follow if you firstly read the information board in the main car park.
There are 50 car parking spaces in the well maintained free car park.
There are also toilets in the main car park.
Picnic benches are also located adjacent to the car park and there are seats and benches scattered along the trails.
There was pleasantly little litter and dog fouling was only seen near the main car park.
Overall I would recommend this place as somewhere to visit

Lovely forest with beautiful trees and colours all around. Walks are not to long and there is a small lake. A coffee shop and public toilets are also facilitated.

Great views and lovely walks. Could be doing with a better sign at the entrance ( drove past it twice!) A sign to show where the burial cairn is would also not go amiss.

Fantastic place with a major caveat. I have visited here before when it didn't have 'facilities' closed anyway due to Covid 19 in June 2020, the main carpark was however open.

One of the most attractive features about the forest is its chambered grave, however over the signage for this in and through the forest an official deserves to be shot - or failing that fired. Whilst in the main carpark there is an excellent interpretive noticeboard with map, in the forest there is no clear signage to the wonderful chambered grave - on top of a hill with fantastic panoramic views, I was lucky there were people galore that guided me there - you may not be. There are a maze of paths through the dense forest, making decent signage essential.

Beautiful setting with new facilities. Needs more signage on walkways. Otherwise perfect spot. Nice flat walk around lake with more challenging walk to top of forest.

This is a stunning place and such an untapped area of Northern Ireland. The whole area is unbelievably beautiful. This forest park is absolutely gorgeous and is worthy of a five star rating. So, it's sad for me to give it only three.

Firstly- finding the place. You take a right at the roundabout in Augher. We drove quite a while before realising that we must have missed it. Turning back, we found a small wooden sign at the side of a lane bearing the words "Knockmany Forest"- not visible on our way out and no DOE Brown Sign to tell us we were there.

Brand new carpark- excellent- facilities- clearly built, but not open, even on a Saturday afternoon. :( It's mid October, not January.

There are two maps in this place- one near the very new car park and one near the summit. Neither of them show a fraction of the actual paths that there are in this place. It's therefore nearly impossible when actually walking it to find your way.

There are very few or no real markers as you try to find your way to the summit. We were wandering for ages, often retracing our steps, before we finally found the cairn at the top. Surely this would be really cheap for the forestry commission to introduce? A couple of wooden stakes? A sign?

The views at the top are mesmerising and should be enough to make this a tourist destination, even without the gorgeous cairn at the top. It's literally unbelievable that there's no sign or attempt to explain the cairn at the top- there's a sign more or less saying "yes, you're at the top" but no sign to tell you about the cairn.

To sum up, I loved my walk (I guess we did about 10km in the end) and my dogs certainly loved it too. The paths were well maintained and the views gorgeous. The woods are stunning.

PLEASE fix the waymarking- it's ludicrous. If there'd been signs, this would have been a complete five star review.

The map at the front has been moved so the directions are back to front. La k of signs in the forest. They have built a cabin in the carpark but no idea what it's for or who to contact to find out. Common sense wouldn't go a miss.
