Menard is a mountain that on its own does not have the X Factor. Thankfully there is a great supporting cast to put on a show that might just be unforgettable. I have approached the mountain from all cardinal compass points and in the process tackled the hills and mountains that surround Meenard.

The most satisfying route was from Goles Forest to the S, tramping over Mullaghsallagh, Oughtmore and Mullaghaneany before the top of Meenard. This brings the highlight of dropping nearly due S from the summit to the steep ravines and waterfalls of Golnasivagh Burn which travels through a wonderfully bleak valley. The abandoned hamlet of Goles stands monument to this bleak place and the Goles River is then followed to return.

Banagher Forest to the E also provides a great approach over Oughtmore and Mullaghaneany with a bit of back tracking, though a different route can be followed back through the forest.

From the N the Owenbeg River can be followed to take in Mullaghgash and Barnes Top before heading for the heights of Meenard. This allowed me to take in a couple of new tops and approach from a new angle.

Perhaps the least adventurous would be from the high parking spot found to the W at the col with Sawel, unless the tops further E could be included.

A trusty fencline traverses the top of Meenard and a small cairn has grown a little bigger in recent years. Boggy ground and peat hags are a distinct feature, though these take on an amazing hue in frozen times.

The Sperrins are all about views and from the topviews reach to the Donegal Hills to the west with Muckish very distinct, north to Inishowen and Lough Foyle and east to Knocklayd at Ballycastle. The Scottish islands further north are even visible on occasion. South the line of the Mournes can be seen to stretch out to Slieve Gullion. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/243/comment/876/
