As the name suggests

Whats in a name? The name Rocky Mountain may conjour up images of jagged scree filled aretes for some but alas this is not the case. The name is spot on though and indeed it is rocky. The summit area is dotted with rocks and large stones and some stone slabs. We approached Rocky Mountain from Rourkes Park.

From Rourkes Park follow the track to its end. As you approach the end of the track you will note a large timber post with a green sign nailed to it indicating the route to Round Seefin. Follow this route which will take you along the forest edge and across a number of stiles. More of these green signs will lead you onto Long Seefin and utlimately a vivid trail can be followed which will take you right to the mourne wall. Navigation could not be easier - at the foot of Rocky Mountain a stile is provided to allow you cross the mourne wall and ascend Rocky.

An option for the return route could be to drop back to the wall and loop around to Hares Castle and down the Annalong Valley from there. We however simply retraced our steps back to the car. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/406/comment/6206/
