Good Mountain to get back in to the swing of hill walking again. Parked the car in at the car park beside Rocky Mountain and then walked up the track to castle bog and the continued to small bog lake Shanlough. Be warned of your feet disappearing in the bog. The wall/fence will keep you from sinking. We marched on to Shanlieve Mountain and that’s what I call a steep accent especially when it clears out the lungs. (Take two steps forward and you have ascended about 1.5 meters.) Once you get to the top, the views are splendid. The decent back to the car park is pretty easy; just follow the river from windy gap and back to the car park. About 2 -3 hours walk Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/217/comment/1375/
