An excellent track taking in a few hidden gems off the beaten track. Taking the road up behind the Lumpers Pub. There is normally plenty of room to park near the RSJ barrier, however you will need to find somewhere else out of the way of forestry operations at present. You shouldn't park at the barrier because it prevents forestry trucks turning. The suggestion is to park at a spot just beyond this on the right that has space for at least five cars, or avail of the secure parking back at Lumpers Pub. Briefly follow the forest track up the tain way. At the first corner go straight on rather than turn and join what is at this time a very new route along the banks of the stream, now known as Foyles Way. The route will cross the river on a number of occasions through some very picturesque and varied scenery until finishing up at another forest track. From here it is left and heading straight for Carnavaddy. From Carnavaddy the route picks up the poc fada stones and takes what is probably the easiest route between here and Clermont Carn. From the carn it is sheep trails down the face of the black mountain until reaching An Fhana Mor (the poc fada start point, marked by small Dolmen replica and modern day standing stones). The poc fada markings are followed again until crossing the ravine, from where one of the many tracks is followed back to the top of the stone road, which is descended and back to the car. Walked at the height of the summer when all ground was good, but parts of this route will be very wet in winter.
