Soggy Trip
by chrizoneill  2 Jun 2011
Travelling up from the car park on the Slievenaman road is a doddle until you turn of the track that encircles Meelbeg and leads up to Bearnagh. After this the land that looked so easy to cross is quite peaty and holds water and ‘muck’ for a bit longer than most of the surroundings, making it that little bit harder to cross than you might otherwise imagine. Once through this however and out the other site you can begin tackling the relatively short upward slope. On the day we were there the wind was extremely high, which meant peering over the top nearly took our heads off. It all was worth it though as once at the top the commanding view from right in the heart of the inner Mournes made it all worthwhile. Not the most challenging in the Mournes, and a little awkward for the marsh that you have to traverse, but still good. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/404/comment/6367/
