Glenlara makes an ideal first stop on a Glenlara - Birreencorragh - Knockaffertagh horseshoe. It's possible to drive along the forest tracks to park at a clearing at G 0349 0239. The OS map isn't 100% accurate, but if you keep going as far as you can go in a normal car you'll find it easily enough. You then tackle the steep climb north behind your car up onto the eastern shoulder of Glenlara. There are three cairns in the vicinity of the summit, marking the spine of the ridge. Nice views from the summit including a wide sweep from Nephin to Buckoogh. Picture shows the summit area and the ridge walk on to Birreencorragh (right, in cloud).
