The Birds Circuit
by colin4  4 May 2011
I spent last Friday in the Mournes hiking the "Birds" - Hen, Cock,Pigeon and Eagle. Much longer than I had anticipated and with Slievemoughanmore and Shanlieve thrown in, not to mention Castle Bog, it turned into a bit of an epic. I was surprised how tough this was in parts especially the last two climbs. Eagle was brutal and the descent of Shanlieve when exhausted very trying. However the long and picturesque trail out of the mountains back to Leitrim lodge picnic area was wonderful and a great finish to an unforgetable journey. The heat did not help but the views were magnificent. This route is listed in Paddy Dillon's Mournes Walks book as difficult - I would say this was VERY difficult but wonder what others think Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/387/comment/6340/
