Glenariff Forest Park?

Has anyone visited Glenariff Forest Park? I'm visiting Northern Ireland next month, for the 2nd time. I loved my time driving through the Glens of Antrim, along the coast, last year! I am wondering how much time to allot to this Park or special hints or tips I should keep in mind. Photos look fabulous on the official website http://www.discovernorthernireland.com/Glenariff-Forest-Park-Glenariffe-Ballymena-P2825, but there's hardly any info on the web regarding this park (even at the official website), and I would like the perspective of someone who has actually visited this site. I've also looked on tripadvisor for more info.

Hello April,
We visited Glenariff when we were in Northern Ireland. We were there in July. We were all alone that day, which made it especially enjoyable. The scenery is very peaceful. The forest is beautiful with streams and waterfalls. The trails go up and down, but there is nothing strenuous. It is a lovely place. You can allow about as much time as you want. I would say that you need a minimum of 2 or 3 hours to walk and enjoy. We had about 3 hours as I remember. I highly recommend a stop.
