As on Slieve Meelmore, there is a tower near the summit of Slieve Commedagh. On the southern side, at the head of the Annalong Valley, is a spectacular group of granite tors known as 'the Castles'. These can be appreciated from the Brandy Pad, a track once used by smugglers. During the 18th Century the Mourne Mountains were notorious for smuggling commodities such as wine, silk, tobacco, tea and brandy, mainly from Britain. The cargo would be brought ashore under the cover of darkness and taken over the mountains to Hilltown and the surrounding areas.   Slieve Commedagh is the second highest mountain in the Mourne Mountains area and the 65th highest in Ireland. Slieve Commedagh is the second highest point in county Down.

Rather than descending via the obvious path by the Glen River, it's also possible to leave Slieve Commedagh to the north, taking in the minor summit of Shan Slieve, before heading east to met the Glen River path just SW of the forest. This takes you along the ridge that divides the valleys of the Glen and Sprinkwee rivers, which is a pleasant diversion. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/63/comment/2417/
