Onzy: Track 3565 in area near Nephin Beg S Top, North Mayo (Ireland)

Length: 8.1km, Creator time taken: 3h25m, Ascent: 547m, Descent: 551m
Places:Start at F94103 07373, Nephin Beg S Top, Nephin Beg, end at F93436 07510 681m W from Start Logged as completed by 1
Route from South to Nephin Beg and its South Top.
Sandman has suggested a parking place deep in the forest north of the usual southern start from the Brogan Carroll bothy. By creative use of forest roads you can emerge onto the Bangor Trail about 4k along the usual route, saving abouut 8k on the round trip.
The roads are not good, but with extreme care, they are passable. I looked carefully for any gates which could be shut off blocking our retreat, but saw nothing.

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 2h 32m + 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.
