No cairn now remaining, but the top of the hill is stony (OS Memoirs). Cairn Sunday is the last Sunday in July, and the old tradition of climbing Mullaghcarn on this day has recently been revived.   Mullaghcarn is the 411th highest place in Ireland. Mullaghcarn is the second most southerly summit in the Sperrin Mountains area.

Easy and Well-walked Hill
Short Summary created by Peter Walker, Onzy,  6 Mar 2015
Mullaghcarn is an isolated peak north of Omagh on the B48 to Gortin situated in the popular Gortin Glen Forest Park. A number of signed walks are available in the Park. The summit itself has a number of masts and a trig pillar - however, its prominence means that the views from the top are stunning. The last Sunday in July is designated Cairn Sunday and the old tradition of climbing the hill on that day has been recently revived.

One of the upsides (or downsides) of masts, is that they are normally serviced by roads, and Mullaghcarn is no exception. The service road leaves the B48 at H494 830 A and winds its steady way to the top, a distance of about 3km. Just over an hour should see you up and down.

There are other routes however, and the hill can be reached from the north, beginning at parking near Oak Lough, on the road heading east from the B48 at H494 842 B. There are a number of parking places along this road. A further route is available from the north east beginning in the townland of Lenagh.
