A worthwhile diversion
by Harry Goodman  5 Nov 2011
On the same day as I climbed Crockdooish ( 18 May 2010) I also climbed Loughermore. Once at the crossroads on the A6 C546084 H I headed NE on the B69 signed for Limavady. The start of the walk was from the small car park for Loughermore Forest (already idenified by three5four0) at C5840012600 following the same route but with one variation. From the car park I walked NE along the road and turned left onto the Slaghtmanus Road. The forest track at C583129, provided a little care is taken at various junctions, leads directly to the top and the Trig. Pillar.Although this is a walk on forest tracks it has the advantage that there are frequent cleared areas with views across to the main Sperrin ridge and beyond. At C5829913721 I I kept to the main track as it swung left across a small bridge and up to a meeting of four tracks at C5827313976 J. From here I kept to the right on up the hillside. At C5850214183 K I was faced with a choice of route to the top. (1) I could follow the main track to the left and then some way along take the first right turn and follow same to the top or (2) Continue straight ahead uphill on a good track which evenually peters out to become a long grassy spongy ride of approx 500m before once again becoming a forest track which then leads straight to the top. This latter route is the one I choose to give some variety from forest track walking. In view of the dry conditions it was not too difficult to cross but I would not advise it as a route after a period of heavy rain! On the way to the top I met the main track coming in from the left at C5890115174 L. The high point of this hill lies a few metres to the W (left) of the Trig Pillar C589 157 M. Comment by three5four0 on the view from the top is spot on, especially that down over Lough Foyle and across to Binevenagh (Keenaght's lowest hill). To the East I could see the large Windfarm on nearby Altahullion Hill. On my descent I decided to stay with the main forest track turning right at C5890115174 L and walking a long straight line down to a T junction where I turned left and walked out to C5850214183 K where I joined the track I had been on on my way up. From here I turned right and continued down back to the start. A satisfying walk of 7k easily completed in one and a half hours. This is a hill that can be walked as a break from driving on a journey to the NW (see also my comments on Crockdooish). It would also be possible to make a more circular and longer route by a selective choice of tracks, all of which seem to be accurately marked on OSNI Sheet 7.
