Tarmaced, flat trail the entire way. Very good surface from Stranmillis to 2km past Shaw's Bridge, suitable for classic and skating. It then gets narrower and the tarmac deteriorates from Edenderry village to 2 miles before Lisburn, where it is only suitable for classic skiing. Surface improves again towards Lisburn.

Isolated in parts.
