Visited Benbradagh on 12-09-07. A road passes over the lower slopes of it but is blocked off at both ends so is best to arrive from the Dungiven side. Or if you want a really long walk land in from the legananam pot. Driving up the road there were a few paragliders circling overhead, looked like top fun. Parked at the small park where road ends and followed the service road to a mast and then on over surprisingly grassy ground to the summit. The views over to lough foyle and the sperrins were great, and visibility permitting am sure the donegal and antrim mountains would make an appearance too. While at the summit a paragliding dude drifted his way over. The views from where i was standing were impressive can only imagine what its like in a sky hammock! This was my first time on benbradagh, (although i am from the bann valley), and found it very handy for good views so will definitely be back. About 45 mins in all.
