Little mountain, Big attitude
Short Summary created by wicklore,  2 May 2011
Slieve Beg sits at the northern end of a ridge of mountains that separate the Annalong Valley from the joint Silent Valley/Ben Crom Valleys. Slieve Beg (Little Mountain) is well named as it is surrounded to the west, north and east by higher mountains such as Donard, Commedagh, Bearnagh, Cove, Lamagan and Chimney Rock. However what it lacks in stature it more than makes up for in its eastern face, which is made up of sheer cliffs and the infamous Devils Coach Road – a fearsome steep gully that should only be tackled by the very experienced.

One approach is to follow the Bloody Bridge track starting at J389 270 A. Follow the track for about 4 kms up to the Mourne Wall and the Brandy Pad at J353 268 B. Cross the stile at the wall and follow the clear Brandy Pad track NW for about 2kms until it passes over the col between Slieve Beg and Slieve Commedagh. A short walk of a few hundred metres south will bring you to the summit area. Caution is needed as the bog of the summit abruptly plummets away to the east as the cliffs literally start at the summit area. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/297/comment/5057/
