Overlooks the Spelga Dam and the Deer's Meadow, the source of the River Bann. It is surprising to think that this river rises less than 10 miles from the coast near Newcastle, and yet it empties into the sea near Coleraine.   Slieve Muck is the 160th highest place in Ireland.

Follow the wall to the summit
Short Summary created by jackill,  19 Aug 2014
Park at J27115 25243 A, an access road to Spelga Reservoir, room for 5-6 cars on the roadside without blocking the road way. Cross the public road and over the wall on the far side heading generally east then follow the stone wall uphill until it meets the main Mourne wall crossing near the summit area.
The summit is marked by a trig pillar. Muck is a good vantage point on a clear day to see all of the western and central Mournes. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/151/comment/4911/
