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.

The Loop walks here are well signposted, it's a great idea to go out onto each headland.
