Follow the trail from Divis Coffee Barn towards the Divis transmitter masts. Just before reaching the masts, bear right onto a section of wooden boardwalk. The two masts relay TV, radio and digital signals across the whole of Northern Ireland.
At the end of the boardwalk, turn right onto the gravel path. This leads towards the summit of the Black Mountain, passing the Bobby Stone. The summit is marked by a trigonometry pillar. From here, you can enjoy exhilarating views across Belfast and beyond.
Continue along the gravel path as it winds its way along the ridge towards the hill, crossing the first stile.
The path leaves the ridge before reaching the hill. It then continues to weave its way back towards Divis Cafe, crossing another stile and the Collin River along the way.
When you reach the access road, turn left to return to Divis Cafe.
