I climbed Barnes Top yesterday, Saturday the 19th of December. I did so in the company of the West Tyrone Ramblers as we climbed high into the Sperrins on a cold winters morning. We started the walk 3 miles outside Park on the road to Feeny (B44) at an old public house, Labelled on OS map. It is 300m up the road from Ballydonegan sweat house which is signposted. We parked here and headed down the road to the small cottage and the signpost for the sweat house. We followed a lane around the right hand side of the house and then turned left on another lane leading down to a river. There is a wooden bridge crossing the river which leads to the sweat house however do not cross it but continue up the lane. After 500m or so you pass some outbuildings on your right, rounding a gate you continue on the track which gradually begins to turn to the left. Then you come to a river, cross it and continue on the path up the hill. You then cross the river again before reaching an iron gate, go through it and continue along the path. Here the path is quite cut up and wet so walking on the bank is the best. You then reach another gate, this time a wooden one go through it, then continue. At this stage the path begins to peter out. At this stage you will notice something sticking up high on the mountain on your right. It appears like a standing stone but is infact a tree. You then begin the climb up the heather to this tree and on up past it until you reach a fence. By this stage you will be ready for a break as the climb up the heather is tiresome. Here you can enjoy great views of Sawel and the surroundings Sperrins. This however is not the true top so you follow the fence line across to the east (watch out for the pools) to reach the top of Barnes Top. There is nothing marking the top of the mountain however a raised piece of appears to be the highest point. I descended via the same route. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/601/comment/4310/
