Picture: Formoyle over Glencar
 
"Usnea Articulata" in Glencar !!!
by swoop  5 May 2011
We decided to trace the source of Glencar Waterfall. Parking at the tourist car park we followed the left footpath to the waterfall , and then went offroad at the old stone steps half way bank. This led us to the forest running on the west side of the stream/ waterfall. This is easy follow , with old walk ways and paths / roads most of the way. Forest is quite steep , so leave this for a dry day. We eventually crossed an old bridge half way up , which brought us to the east side of the stream , and then upwards through very steep braodleaf forest to an old walkway to Formoyle Hill 343m. We discovered the source of the waterfall, and an unusual tree covered in a rare Lichen called "Usnea Articulata" at the foot of Formoyle ridge. normal Grid Ref = G 765 438 A
