The ridge from Corranabinia to Ben Gorm beckoned to me on my way up the other side of the valley ,climbing Glennamong, and my eyes were drawn time and again to its curves and undulations. It reminded me of my favourite walk in the Mornes - from Beg over Cove, Lamagan and then Binnian. From the summit of Corranabinnia there is a drop of 1000 ft to the col before the climb to Ben Gorm.

As can be seen from the pic there is a steep initial drop and then a roller coaster of rises and falls, over a mixture of rocky and wet ground. The Glennamong and Glendahurk river valleys sit either side and both are heavily forested and pretty wet. The ground drops steeply into both valleys and offers great views as drop along the ridge. It is a steep enough pull of 600ft up to the cairn at the top of Ben Gorm, especially after a few hours walking, although the ground is good. There are again fantastic views from the summit, most notably over Clew Bay to a mist shrouded Croagh Patrick. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/309/comment/1919/
