Colin Glen Trust is an environmental charity which manages a 200 acre forest park, we are often referred to as Belfast’s green lung, we are nestled on the foothill of the Belfast Hills. The Colin Glen Trust was founded in 1989, with a few core members and a dedicated team of volunteers, where we worked to plant 60,000 trees, design walkways, construct bridges, and create over 5000 meters of trails so local people, and local wildlife, could enjoy the glen.
The forest park hosts a range of world class facilities such as the Black Bull Run, a certified Gruffalo trail, Irelands longest zipline, Irelands first Trackman driving range and a newly developed outdoor education programme. Colin Glen has something for everyone, from hikers, Thrillseekers, families, golfers, wildlife enthusiasts. You name it. We have recently begun our journey as a Leave No Trace Accredited center to help spread awareness of responsible outdoor recreation within all of our much-loved green spaces
