I started this walk off the Moneyeany to Feeny B40, at 662031 D take the concrete farm lane, this is overgrown in places. There is room to park just after a cattle grid or further along as the track forks. At the fork go right and drop down to a picturesque ford (658023 E) across the Owenbeg river, beside a splash of purple from a stand of foxgloves. I met some impressively horned sheep here who seemed to have as impressive an attitude as they stood thier ground and stared me out, while i hurried on with head bowed. The river is crossed again by a bridge of worringly decaying sleepers and tin sheets, yes i did test it out gingerly but am sure it has held far greater weight than mine. The track climbs alongside the river as it drops, with the ever present sound of water heightened by a series of small waterfalls. At a place you feel appropriate drop down and cross the river, maybe stopping as i did to take in the pools of water, rocks and overhanging trees - the word beautiful comes to my mind.
Cross a fence and climb over mature ground which is quite arduous but was a least dry. Views to the N bring the jutting point of Benbradagh and further still to the steep steps of Binevenaghs cliff face. Nearer to the top there is a change to shorter vegeatation and random boulders of all sizes. The top is crossed by a fenceline (N-S) and again has more mature ground underfoot, being reached in under one hour. Due to its profile and slightly isolated position from the surrounding hills there is an impressive perspective far and wide. The already mentioned N views extend to Inishowen and the height of Slieve Snaght, down the length of the Derryveagh mtns with all the distintive tops and on to the Bluestacks as come S. This also brings the vision of the big central Sperrin hills from Mullaghmore all the way to Mullaghcarbatagh.

I found a large boulder on which to perch and eat lunch (just as the fence drops down to the S) and survey the majesty of what was before me as the N breeze created clouds out of the blue sky which drifted thier shadows up and over the Sperrins to the S. An easy drop of 15 mins along the fence brings the birthing place of a couple of rivers amid a sea of grass. This was wet even after the dry weather of so many weeks. A left turn would follow the Owenbeg river back to the points already described or an excess of energy could be burned off by tackling the 400m hills ahead (Barnes Top, Knockanbane mountain to name but two).
