About

Consisting of 58 hectares, Conrhenny is a growing venue for community involvement, with a 5 hectare Children's Wood located in the heart of the forest. Created as a tree education initiative, the woodland comprises of more than 5,000 native trees, planted over a 10 year period by local primary school children.

Conrhenny is also a great place for recreation with a a good network of paths, a pond and far reaching views over Douglas. It features a number of way-marked mountain bike trails and the chosen venue for the annual 24 hour endurance mountain bike event 'Longest Day Longest Ride'. Conrhenny's particulary flat terrain is also popular trim trails for runners and horse riders.

Please remember that forest roads are multi-user routes so share with care and respect other visitors. Please remain on designated routes in order to preserve Conrhenny Community Woodland.
