I parked at the well used large car park at J196 174. This was bustling with people having barbeques, playing sports and wandering along nearby tracks. There were horse riders, mountain bikers and plenty of hikers. I had absolutely no concerns at leaving my car there. It is always a bit worrying parking a car in unfamiliar places but this really felt like a secure starting place.

At the end of the car park is a notice board with maps, colour coded routes and general information. Beyond this is a track where there is a choice of two 'black arrow' routes. By taking the left route, and following the arrows, I headed up through the forest to the col (J202 174)between Slievemeen and Slievemartin in about 25 minutes. Another 10 minutes along a fence brings you to the few stones that mark Slievemeen's summit at J201 169. The views were fantastic in the good weather. The Cooley's were so near and so far south across Carlingford Lough, basking in the sunshine. Warrenpoint and Rostrevor were only a stones throw to the west. The Irish Sea glistened and sparkled off to the east. Shanlieve, Binnian and distant Bearnagh were distinctive among the spread of hills to the north.

I headed back to the col and on to Slievemartin which took about 15 minutes. I chose to continue on from there to Crenville and Slievemeel, and I would recommend this car park as the start point for those looking for either the short or longer walk. I was easily able to follow forest tracks the 3 kms back from Slievemeel to the car park. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/543/comment/4122/
