The ascent to Carn is easy enough. My favourite approach would be from the Ott track. Park at the Ott/Blue Quarry car park and make your way up the Ott track. Gaiters are essential no matter the weather, as it is boggy the whole way up the track, especially at the final stage where you ascend through peat bogs. Follow the track untill you come to the Mourne wall, pausing maybe to take a break at the style! Then head rightwards, up the northern slopes of Carn to the summit. The reward in views is excellent, especially over Loughshannagh which Carn bathes its feet in. Try to extend your walk further, by maybe descending to Loughshannagh, and following its shores to Doan. Or alternatively, head south to take in Slieve Muck, then follow the path to the road, and follow it back down to the Ott car park. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/300/comment/2668/
