Commedagh-Corragh walk
by hbowman  29 May 2010
Last saturday, at 6am, we started off from Donard Car Park and headed toward the saddle between Donard and Commedagh. It was one of the best days I've ever experienced in the mountains. After negotiating the tricky part coming up to the saddle, fine views opened up of the Annalong Valley, Lower Cove, Lamagan and Binnian. Then the walk really got exciting. As we approached the summit of Commedagh, excellent views were to be had of Bernagh, Meelbeg, Doan, Slieve Muck, Ben Crom, Slieve Loughshannagh and Carn. From the summit of Commedagh, we enjoyed an amazing panorama towards Lough Island Reavy Reservoir. Thereafter we started the descent towards Corragh, which is quite steep in places. Spectacular views were offered of Ben Crom Reservoir with Slievenaglogh in the background - for me, this is one of the best beauty areas in the Mournes. Continuing to follow the Mourne wall, we came to a stile. After climbing the stile we followed the path beside Luke's mountain, which eventually brought us to the Trassey Track. The walk finished at Meelmore Lodge - 8.2 miles in total. I have also completed this walk in an anti-clockwise direction. I think there is more scrambling this way coming up to Hare's Gap and beyond towards Commedagh, whereas from Donard park, apart from the saddle, the ascent is less challenging. Either way, this is an excellent walk with very impressive views of Eastern and Central Mournes Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/212/comment/5835/
