The C102 is a rural road in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It starts on the B147 and from there heads in a south west direction through The Dark Hedges - a tunnel of very old beech trees, which was used as a filming location in the television series Game of Thrones - until it ends at another crossroads, this time on the B15.
In order to preserve the natural environment of the trees, in 2017 a road traffic order was applied to the location to restrict access to the road as the large numbers of visitors including coaches of tourists was considered to be unsuitable for the capacity of the road.
