Southern Mournes Walk
by hbowman1  6 Nov 2011
I climbed this mountain for the third time yesterday. Started off from the car park near the forest office in Rostrevor and followed the path up past Fiddlers Green and eventually came to Cloghmore Boulder. After leaving the forest, we simply followed the path up to the trig pillar at Slievemartin. Slievemartin offers very decent views across Carlingford Lough to Slieve Foye. Turning clockwise, Pierce's Castle, Cock mountain, Shanlieve and Eagle mountain of the Western Mournes come into view. Further afield, Binnian and Donard became visible. After short break, we headed toward Knockshee. After marshy terrain to start with, a well-trodden path enabled quick access to Knockshee, approx 2km from Slievemartin. Views extended toward Lamagan, Slievenaglogh, Commedagh, wee Binnian and Ben Crom as well as previously listed mountains from the summit. Thereafter, we simply re-traced our steps and headed back toward Rostrevor via Slievemartin. The full walk was 11.5km and took approx 4 hours. The only 'tricky' section is the path from Rostrevor to Cloghmore Boulder - the path does get narrower after leaving the car park and some trees had fallen across the path. Setting aside the path, this walk falls into the category of 'great views with minimal effort.' Slievemartin would be in my top 5 Mourne summits - the others being Doan, Slieve Binnian, Eagle mountain and Slieveloughshannagh. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/498/comment/6612/
