Cedars Walkers


Newtownabbey Way (1), Oxford Island (1) and Slievemoughanmore (3)

Three very different walks for next week. Details later.

You can purchase a forest pass over the phone from Castlewellan Forest Park at 028 4377 8664


Where to meet

Whenever possible we endeavour to use public transport and/or the minibus to cut our carbon footprint.

Unless otherwise stated walkers leave Jethro Centre, Lurgan on Thursdays at 9:45am. Please be there at least 10 minutes before departure time for car share and minibus. Some members meet at Portadown Rugby Football Club (PRFC) at 9:30am for car share although the time may vary depending on where we are walking.

Although we make every effort to stick to the published programme events sometimes conspire to make us change our plans. We try to notify all members of planned walks by text and email by 9:00pm on the night before walks and the website is usually updated by that time also.
