Short Summary created by wicklore,  14 May 2011
Slievemeel is situated midway along a ridge of upland that starts with Slievemeen above Carlingford Lough to the south, and which leads eventually to Shanlieve and Eagle Mountain to the north. It is a part of the 400 metre group of hills known as Rosstrevor Mountains, and the lower slopes of these hills are extensively forested. Slievemeel has some nice views of the higher mountains to the north, as well as such small hills as Tievedockeragh, Gruggandoo and Crenville. There some good views along Carlingford Lough and over some of the coastal villages such as Rostrevor.

Slievemeel can be reached from the carpark at J196 174 A. At about 250 metres altitude it takes some of the effort out of the walk. Follow forest tracks north about 3kms to J205 200 B. Climb the fence to handrail a forest edge upwards for about 1km before turning east to reach the boggy summit about 150 metres away.

Reaching Slievemeel from Crenville to the south is difficult due to forestry and tough underfoot conditions between the two hills. You could make your way out onto the forest tracks shown on the map but Crenville makes you work, so think hard if you want to approach Slievemeel from here!
