Masts over the Mealagh
by thomas_g  10 Feb 2012
The Mealagh valley sign marks where I parked at W137 544 B (room for 6 cars), it's like the valley that time forgot and feels very isolated. There is a forest road all the way to the summit, which starts out level and gets steep at the end. The ascent doesn't offer much in the way of views, but the views to the south must be stunning on a clear day, if you can forget all the masts.
I'm wary about the access, I noticed some of the standard "you are on a farm, no un-authorised entry" signs about 1/3 the way from the car. They appear to point in both directions, so I'm a bit unsure where you can't enter, but there are possible access problems via this route.
I had intended to bag another Arderin by walking the 1.5km to Nowen SW, but the terrain looked truly horrible, tussocky grass with bog between the tussocks, I'll keep that treat for a drier day.
With this route, 5km, you'll up and down in an hour. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/384/comment/6679/
