PARADISE AND PARKING LOTS
Another thing - and why not? Coming off Hare's Gap to the Polaphuca today, it looked like some vehicle parked at the foot of the Gap. In the 20 years of walking these mountains I am pleased to say I and everyone else have never seen any kind of vehicle at this height. Everything stays at ground level at the Trassey car park. So I thought it must be an optical illusion - farmers stuff etc. But nope there it was - a pickup van and through the binos I could have sworn I saw the Mourne Heritage Trust logo. I do hope I was mistaken and that the guardians of the Mourne Mountains choose to walk the track and not to drive it. Of course they could have been recce-ing the next chapter of their track building work. I didn't see anybody doing that but I did see a lot of boys craic-ing and keeho-ing up on the Gap. Something to do with the Mourne Wall Walk.
Wonder if the MHT would like to comment - now there would be a thing.

Slieve Beg: Southern plunge

The famous side of Slieve Beg is the NE, gashed by the Devils Coachroad. However the SE side also has its drama.Taken on a frosty slippy day from Cove.

Dromderalough NE Top: Odd-looking formations
Colin Murphy 2 days ago.
On my approach to the summit I came across a large field of hundreds of these rather striking formations, which I think are are moss-covered boulders, but which looked like giant green ant-hills o...

Dromderalough NE Top: Long route from the south.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy 2 days ago.
Not normally done in isolation, this top usually forms part of a walk involving Dromderalough itself or Mangerton. One approach is from the north, which has the advantage of a gently rising track ...

Mangerton: The Lake District

Scapania's directions to the start are perfect. It's possible to make a looped walked taking in Stoompa and Mangerton which will allow for great views of so many lakes I won't list them. It's a fa...
