Wall to Wall Mournes
Hello Ken - nailed by the Mournes: nippy enough. And no better way to go. The Mournes in edited form goes like this. 3 main kick-off points: Donard carpark Newcastle - gets you Donard, Commedagh and others; Trassey Track ex Bryanford gets you Bearnagh, Meelmore, Meelbeg and others; Carrick Little carpark up off the Kilkeel Road, gets you Binnian, Lamagan and others. The Hilltown Mournes from Hen Mountain carpark gets you Hen, Cock, Pigeon, Eagle psitocosis and sometimes lost. Come up from Bloody Bridge only if your car has broken down there - itís the least encouraging of the entrees and you will have to fight through the entire primary school population of NI, doing some aimless but busy manoeuvres. If you want to do some wall-following, which entre nous is not that hard, best picking up from either Commedagh (ex Donard carpark) or at the other end, Meelmore (ex Trassey Track - beautiful) - you can go up from Meelmore Lodge, which more and more people are doing, which only means more and more people are amphibious. I think for wall vistas, prob kick off from Commedagh. If I recall, your first attack was on Donard, so youíll be keen to try another route - calm yourself. Come back up the same Glen River route, but at the saddle (between Donard and Commedagh) hang a right up on to the latter and set out along the wall to Hareís Gap - wall vistas galore. At Hareís Gap you can decide whether to bag Bearnagh (not to be messed with) and/or Meelmore and thereafter reverse along the Brandy Pad track back to the saddle and directly into the pub.
Many thanks for th.. by KenG   (Show all posts)

While not very challenging, recent felling means the views along the way and from the summit are pleasant enough. A nice spot for a lunchtime walk.
