simon3: Track 3632 in area near Bengorm, North Mayo (Ireland)
Two Bengorms and Glendahurk Return.
Length: 14.2km, Creator time taken: 5h59m, Ascent: 685m, Descent: 723m
Places:Start at L91259 97795, Bengorm, Bengorm NW Top, end at Start Logged as completed by 1
Usually visitors near here will take the same initial route and then go over the spectacular Corranabinnia and its knife edge arete to Corranabinnia SW. However for a shorter trip only taking in the two Bengorms then this is a possible route. Note - difficult descent: the descent from the col between Bengorm NW and Corranabinnia, as shown in the track, is possible but is very steep. There are cliffs to watch out for. An easier descent into the Glendahurk valley can be made from the col between Bengorm NW and Bengorm. Note - forest and streams. The track taken used rides shown on OSM mapping, however they were extremely wet underfoot at the initial entry into the forest. Also at one point there is substantial stream quite possibly impassable after high rain to get past in the forest. Look for a bridge to the right of the track. There were two possible bridges as of Oct 2017 and also some odd debris which included a bed including a headboard, mattress etc. You'd have to go to some trouble to bring such to this part of the forest which is well away from a drivable road. Strange.

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 3h 59m + 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.
