Terrain Summary Donard Forest lies on the lower slopes of NI’s highest mountain and as a result the terrain is steep in places. The Glen River divides the forest with some reasonably runnable deciduous areas to the SE of the river. To the NW of the river there is dense vegetation and a significant amount of felling so to access the interesting slopes of Drinahillly there is an unavoidable section of path running.
