Celebrate Life with us, Step by Step!

Step out with family, friends or work colleagues and join us on 15th June 2024 for our Divis Mountain Hospice Walk!

For over 40 years, our Hospice Walks have raised millions, supporting specialised care for families throughout Northern Ireland. To continue this vital work, we urge our supporters to lace up their trainers and actively participate. 

Whether you’re walking in memory of a loved one who has passed away, in support of someone who has received care from Hospice or to simply celebrate the joy of life, we’d love you to join us at the starting line.  


The Route

This year, the walk will commence at the Nissen Hut at the lower car park. We will be offering walkers once again the option to avail of two amazing Walk Trails; The Summit Trail or the Ridge Trail! 

The 5K Summit Trail takes you along the Tipperary Road through open heath and blanket bog following a way marked trail to the highest peak in the Belfast Hills, Divis Mountain and allows walkers to experience panoramic views of Lough Neagh, the Mourne Mountains and Strangford Lough 

The 10K Ridge Trail is slightly longer and allows walkers to enjoy 180-degree views across the city and further afield. Take in the Antrim Plateau to the north, Scotland to the east and the Mourne Mountains to the south.
