Glen Helen

About

Glen Helen an area of wooded valleys, is known for the sweeping left-bend and uphill exit towards Creg Willey's Hill on the Snaefell Mountain Course used for the Isle of Man TT Races.

Formerly known as Glen Rhenass, the glen features gardens with rustic bridges and waterfalls through the foliage. The main attraction of the glen is Rhenass Fall, a stream which makes its way down between two hills lined with boulders situated three and a quarter miles into the glen. 

Today a variety of mature and impressive trees including sequoia, thuja, spruces, Douglas fir, oak, sycamore and beech can be observed. Paths traverse the glen alongside the rivers Neb and Blaber. The lower path is fully accessible.

The glen has a children's play area and toilet facilities (including disabled)
