MORE TO MUCK
Hbowman – if you were to call the Bearnagh trio, “Broadway”, your proposed route would be “off off Broadway”. It is not a well trod route even although bits of it are.
Being linear, it commits you a transport strategy.
Other than Meelmore, the terrain is not particularly exciting but there are a couple of points – on Carn or Loughshannagh where arguably you get the best views into the Eastern Mournes proper … anywhere. So pray for a clear day.
Have to write that I have never timed it in but I figure 3+ hours should do it.
Once you are up Meelmore, it is not a particularly arduous task (see the contour lines widening out ie until you come off Muck) – nor is it a saunter in the park.
Starting out tight tracks and clean ascents – ending off mud and tussocky grass.
Finish the project at the side of the Silent Valley road and wonder at the boy racers. Enjoy.
