Descent: 620m

A nice walk of moderate length and effort. Heading up Mullaghcleevaun is the only steep part of the journey. The conditions on the day were very poor with virtually no visibility.

Start from the little car-park at Sorrel Hill and head SSW along the well defined track to the summit of Black Hill, There is a small gathering of stones O041 090 and a marker post just near the summit.

Veer SE and head directly towards O045 085 the saddle between Black Hill and Mullaghcleevaun. Maintain your heading until O053 077 the start of the steep rise to the summit. There is a well defined track you can follow along here. This track eventually turns into an indistinct track stepping your way upwards.

The summit of Mullaghcleevaun has a small cairn barely sufficient to provide shelter. There is a trig point here as well. Depending on conditions be sure to pick the correct track on the return journey. With the driving rain and bad visibility we made a slight error by veering to the north at the bottom of the descent.

All in all, an excellent area which provides excellent views (should you be able to see further than 20 yards!).

[A nice circuit could be made by continuing on to Mullaghcleevaun East Top, Duff Hill and then returning NW using the forest tracks towards the road leading back to Sorrel Hill Gap car-park]
