My wife and I Climbed up Slieve Beg for the first time Sunday 25/03/07. Used the secure carpark at Meelmore Lodge walked around the base of Meelmore then across to the Trassey Track and onwards to the Hares Gap. Following the Brandy Pad around towards the shoulder between Commedagh and Beg and then took a short walk to the summit. When I got to the summit of Beg we stopped for a cup of tea and a bite to eat. The view from the summit of this small mountain makes it worth climbing, especially back towards Bearnagh and with a goord perspective of Donard and Commedagh. After lunch we had a close encounter with the Devils Coach road just looking down towards the valley and the sheer steepness of the scree slope is enough to raise the pulse . We contuined our walk across th the summit of Cove the view here are even better taking in LAMAGAM,THE BINNIANS ,BEN CROM,MEELBEG & MEELMORE to name a few time was running short so we retraced our steps back the way we came to Meelmore Lodge an enjoyable walk on a mild sunny day.
