The Loo valley: yes you can!, but don't...
by thomas_g  19 May 2013
Parked at the gravel area at the road junction at Loo Bridge, walked towards Kenmare on the R569 to a gate, then followed the muddy track to a green field (savour it, it will be the last you'll see). Horrible horrible ascent over boggy tufts with ankle breaking opportunities by the dozen, with the occasional scramble to get over a rock shelf. The going alternates between knee deep dead grass and tufty bog, with a section of pushing through gorse for variety. 2 hours there and back. My advice: go a different way.
