Took in Ridge of Capard as part of an overall loop including Wolftrap, Barna and Baunreaghcong - see relevant summits for info. Easy going from Baunreaghcong to the ridge with some pleasant views overall. From the ridge of capard we dropped down to pick up the slieve bloom way (it is worth noting that the slieve bloom way can also be picked up by dropping down from Baunreaghcong - a 200m section of the track identifies itself as it emerges from the forest before re-entering it again a short time later) which we followed through the forest down to monicknew forest carpark. We enjoyed a brief lunch stop here at the forest recreation area overlooking the monicknew bridge. Continued forward along the slieve bloom way which brought us along the third class road and back through forest areas. This section of the walk was very enjoyable with the sun shining and plenty of wildlife about. Pretty much follwed the slieve bloom way until it brought us back to R440. It was a tough 3km slog back to car from here, mostly uphill. A sting in the tail. A very enjoyable day overall with a total distance of dead on 18.5km over 5 hours 15mins, and didnt come across a single soul all day! Sections of the slieve bloom way were particularly enjoyable.
