BHP Recreational Strategy contains baseline info on existing recreation in the Belfast Hills. A specific study was commissioned in the development year of the LPS in which 6 different sites were assessed for their suitability for various recreational activities. Site managers were also consulted to find out what recreational facilities they might like on their site.


This resulted in the creation of a junior orienteering course beening installed at Cave Hill, around the castle grounds. Maps are available from Belfast Castle, or can be downloaded here:
