The skirting board of the Sperrins
Short Summary created by Peter Walker,  4 Nov 2012
Balix Hill is one of the eminences forming the gradual north-westerly decline from the higher Sperrins, and its isolated-yet-integrated location provides fine vistas of the main range and a vast prospect over the lowlands to Derryveagh and Inishowen and Cuilcagh.

Start from the road junction at (481 956 A) from where a track heads NNE: it should be possible to get a car or two off the road at an opening just NW of here. The track plods purposefully and damply uphill over gates and the odd fence: at a fourth gate before it levels off into more open country turn left and follow a fence up to the summit area. The terrain is a typically Sperrinesque combo of tussocks and bog criss-crossed by fences that constitute the only real obstacles. A few upturned stones mark the top, although other surfaces nearby look similarly high. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/816/comment/5575/
