An excellent circular walk in which to include Slievanorra starts at the main road on the Northern side. Take the forest track directly opposite the Slievanorra track and follow it to the end. Then turn right along a lovely country road. When you come to the next junction turn left and left again. After 1,1/2kms there is a track on the right hand side. This will lead to the minor hills of Aghan, 372mtrs then Eshery 382 mtrs. Just head for the highest point and keep going in a straight line. When you have arrived on Eshery, Trostan will be visible straight ahead. Climb Trostan for the highest point in County Antrim. Next, come off Trostan on it's Western Side. It will lead you down to the posts of the Moyle Way, then a footbridge and finally to the road. Then turn right to follow the road until you come to the first forest track on the left. Take this track through Slievanorra forest to the end then turn left followed by the first right. This will lead out onto the open moorland. If you follow a faint track this will lead to Slievanorra's summit on the right hand side of the ugly hideous masts. Enjoy the views from my closest mountain. When ready to return to your transport just follow the service road on the Northern side of the mountain to it's end. Enjoy! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/440/comment/2635/
