Following on from the posts on Wolftrap Mountain we continued onwards from the cut carpark taking in Barna before contuining on to Baunreaghcong. As mentioned on the Wolftrap post the going from Wolftrap to the cut carpark is tough with thigh high heathers to slog through. Once we reached the cut carpark an established track did emerge up toward Barna and across to Baunreaghcong. Pleasent enough walk and fairly easy going but watch out for those gullies and potholes! Continued on toward ridge of capard - see relevant summit for further information Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/438/comment/3850/
