A distinctive summit
Short Summary created by wicklore  2 May 2011
Slieve Bearnagh North Tor is one of the most visually dramatic of the Mourne Mountains, and it forms the northern summit of the duo of Slieve Bearnagh tops. The highest point is atop the large tor at the summit which can be easily climbed by hopping the wall near the summit and approaching the tor from the northern side.

One approach is to start at Meelmore Lodge at J305 308 A. (Secure parking but at a cost of a couple of pounds), or at a nearby free car park at J311 313 B. From either place follow tracks out onto the open bog to meet the Trassey Track at J312 305 C. Follow the Trassey Track up to the Hare’s Gap at J323 288 D. Turn right and follow the very steep slope up to reach Slieve Bearnagh North Tor. There are magnificent views of the surrounding Mournes and over to the main summit. Bearnagh North Tor be reached in less than two hours, although the steep slopes above the Hare’s Gap may slow you down. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/139/comment/4899/
