Route Changes on Avondhu Way
by Pepe  22 Apr 2018
Approached from carpark above Bay Lough (B). There are new signs on the waymarked trail saying "Blackwater Way Please Note Route Changes". The waymark arrows on the markers look shiny and new, above them it says "Blackwater Way." The half-hearted anglicisation of Avondhu has now been changed into the full-blown anglicisation of Blackwater (who decides these things?).
There is what looks like a brand new stile at one of the county boundary fences (C). This route change makes the route up Knockshanahullion slightly shorter and more direct now, though I took a vaguely curved route following some fences northwest and then made my way west along the vague track that comes across from Knocknalougha. Now that I knew the lay of the land I took the direct route straight back to point C from the summit. It was a gentle walk, a carpet of dwarf heather made the going easy, as did the fact that mountain grasses have been battered into submission by recent bad weather and lay obligingly flat along the ground. Total time there and back from the car, including a couple of stops along the way; 3 and 3/4 hours. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/188/comment/19902/
