Loughermore Forest lies in the upland area between Claudy and Limavady. The forest covers nearly 1400 hectares. The landscape was once very different here, being at such a height this is a place full of neolithic monuments including wedge tombs, barrows, stone circles, and ring marked stones.
There are no formal trails in the forest. Visitors are welcome to explore the whole site which crosses over a few different roads. The forest blocks skirts the North Sperrins Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. From the higher points of the forest there are extensive views over Lough Foyle and the Donegal hills.
The current main species are sitka spruce and lodgepole pine. There are also many corridors of mixed broadleaves to break up the conifer blocks and provide a hardwood habitat for fauna and flora.
