Being a Tyrone man I have visited the Gortin Glens forest park many times but it was only yesterday (28/6/08) that I got round to climbing the mountain that I can see from my window, Mullaghcarn. I took the B48 out of Omagh towards Gortin and a few miles after the village of Gortnagarn I turned into the Forest park which is clearly signposted. I drove on in until I came to the car park but I continued straight through the carpark and out past the two cabins passing a few camping sites until I came to a T junction. I turned right for the 5 mile scenic route. After 2 or 3 miles up, passing a few picnic areas I dropped down into a sort of valley and when I looked at the OS map I realised that Pollen Burn ran down the centre of it. I drove another 150 metres up to the corner and parked the car here beside a small picnic area which is sheltered under the trees. It was here that I started my walk, around the iron gate and up a mucky lane which is nearly overgrown with weeds. I stayed on the lane until I went around a second gate and out onto a tarred road. I turned right up the hill into the shaddow of the trees for around 300 metres and then I rounded another corner were the road begins a steep climb up to a cattle grid were the top finally comes into view at the edge of the trees. From here you just follow the road up to the top to the masts. Over to the back is the trig point but before you get there there is a wet patch and you have to tred through using stones and planks of wood. From the top you can enjoy stunning views of the Sperrin Mountains and out as far as the eye can see to Monaghan and beyond. You should really consider going up on a clear day if you want to experince the true beauty of the scenery. I decended via the same route and continued on down the scenic route back out onto the Gortin Rd. Trackback:
