Peter Walker: Track 3220 in area near Slievenaslat, Mourne Mountains (Ireland)
Length: 5.7km, Creator time taken: 29m39s, Ascent: 154m, Descent: 48m
Places:Start at J33530 36853, end at J32658 37685 1.2km NW from Start Logged as completed by 2
This is an easy loop walk through the Castlewellan Forest, visiting the top of Slievenaslat by a short diversion. It's on substantial tracks at all times, befitting the forest's status as a mountain biking hub and a solid Sunday afternoon picnicking venue. The majority of it is within the forest (as in the bit with lots of trees) itself, but there are still excellent views south to the high Mournes from many sections. These can largely be enjoyed at your leisure, out-of-control mountain bikers being the only vaguely possible hazard. (The time taken was actually a few minutes short of an hour).

Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 1h 24m + time stopped for breaks
Note: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
