Starting at the Greenwood car park (R657 184 D) I looped around the Blackrock to the west of Seefin where I met the Ballyhoura way. I followed this across the heather to Little Carron and then headed onto Carron Mountain. On the way to Little Carron you pass a large radio/telecommunications mast. The area around this was badly cut up by offroad activities. The weather was brilliant which made the walk all that better. As the weather was so good when standing on the top of Carron Mountain I could see all the way west to the MacGuillycuddy's Reeks. The return route took me back to the just after the radio mast and then I took to the forestry tracks on the way back to Seefin, passing the fitness trail, and then headed for Long mountain and down to the car park.
