Linear NW Knockanaffrin ridge walk
by Colin Murphy  26 Apr 2010
Having the benefit of two cars, started at 322 145 A, which is an official trail to the Gap and starts beside a farmyard, complete with a sign denoting distances to various points and warnings about 'at own risk' etc. Followed the trail to the Gap (1 hour) then headed NW for another hour's haul up to Knockanaffrin. From there continued on to Knocksheegowna and descended the ridge to re-emerge on the road at point 255 813 B, where there is a track and room to park a car or two. Total walking time four hours, and a spectacular ridge with great rocky tops, steep cliffs to the east and wonderful views. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/74/comment/4664/
