A circuit of Lough Muskry
by peter1  5 Jul 2020
Despite gale force winds and occasional driving rain, I had a really enjoyable high level walk around Lough Muskry. Starting from the trail head near the water works, as mentioned by others, I took an anti-clockwise route starting on Knockastakeen and around to descend off Farbreaga. I then followed the Lough Muskry trail back to the car. 13km and 755m of ascent. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/307/comment/20805/
