Fine little hill in the southern Mournes
Short Summary created by simon3, wicklore,  4 Jul 2016
Although only a medium sized hill, all of Slievemeen’s 472 metres rise above Carlingford Lough giving it a commanding position and fine views. Most notable are the views of Carlingford Lough itself and across to Slieve Foye & both Foxes and Ravens Rock, although the views out to sea and up towards Black Mountain are great too. The summit is marked by a little pile of stones that is too modest for this singular viewpoint.

Slievemeen is easily reached from the carpark at J196 174 A, where there is a notice board with maps, colour coded routes and general information. The car park is situated at about 250 metres altitude, taking a lot of the sting out of the climb. Following well marked tracks will get you to the col at J202 174 B between Slievemeen and Slievemartin in about 20 minutes. Another 10 minutes along a fence brings you to Slievemeen's summit at J201 169 C. An easy walk recommended for beginners and children. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/543/comment/5302/
