simon3: Track 933 in area near Knocknagapple, Iveragh (Ireland)
Ballaghisheen Gap area to Glenbeigh
Length: 17.6km, Creator time taken: 6h44m, Ascent: 1067m,
Descent: 1176m

Places: Start at V68232 80111, Knocknagapple, Knocknagapple N W Top, Colly, Meenteog South-East Top, Macklaun, Beenreagh, Coolroe, end at V66794 90281 10km N from Start
Logged as completed by 1
This is a great route taking in 6 to 7 summits, two of which are Vandeleur-Lynams (or three if you include Meenteog). With visibility there are great views over the Reeks to the East and the complicated interplay of the sand-spits in Dingle Bay.
There is limited parking near the start. Walk up Knocknagapple and follow the ridge NE to Meenteog (not reached on this track). From there you are on the SE side of the great Glenbeigh horseshoe. Follow over various summits to Windy Gap (Left turn immediately after Coolroe) which is on the Kerry Way and will take you into Glenbeigh.
One option for getting back to the start is by taxi. On the occasion that this track was made a taxi was obtained at the end of the walk, however it might be better to pre-arrange and keep in touch by phone.
