pquinn572 on Curraghchosaly Mountain, 2009
by pquinn572  5 Apr 2009
Yesterday, (4/4/09) I attempted to climb Curraghchosaly Mountain near the well known beauty spot, the Gortin Glens which I visit often as a Tyrone man. I turned in left onto a small road off the main Omagh to Gortin road, a few metres down the road from the turn in to the Gortin Glens on the Omagh side. I followed this road on in for about 600m passing a caravan park and over to stoned area on the right side of the road with a gate and a signpost for cyclists. Here I parked the car(Point A: H478822 A) and began my climb up a steep stoned forestry lane. I continued on up passing another lane which turns down to the right and a water resevoir on the left well hidden by trees and about 100m metres on up on the left side their is a lane leading in to an open area. I continued on up the steep road for another 400 metres, passing another stoned road turning down to the right. I continued on up for another 200m coming to another road on my left hand side, with about 100m on up another road turning up to the left. I took the second of these roads to the left (Point B: H484828 E) turning off the road I had been on for about a Kilometer and onto a steeper road with trees on the right and deforestation on the left. The surface of this road is bad as the rain has washed a lot of loose stones down. You round the small corner and continue on up for another 200m where the road turns again to the left and continues very steeply on up to another corner. At this corner you get the first glimpse of the great view over tyrone and over to Bessy Bell. At this corner I stopped for a breather and enjoyed the view before turning and being face with another 200m steep climb up to a corner which turns left. At this corner there is a small pad leading over to the back and taking a nosey over I saw there was turf cutting going on. I went back out on to the road and continued on a now straight road on up passing a now blew down lookout post and into the shadow of the trees where the mast for the first time comes into view. Follow the road on up to the top. At the top there is no actual structure marking the exact point but the mast may have been built on it. If you stay at the mast you can enjoy great views of Balix Hill and its windmills and also on out to Donegal but the trees block a lot of the spectacular views so I followed a fence line over through bog to another point that the fence continues over. Here you get a far better view of all of Tyrone, Donegal and the magnificent Sperrin Mountains this is 1m lower that the actual top but here you can enjoy spectactular views. This is a long walk, about 2 miles up hill all the way so you should really consider going up on a good day so that you efforts to get their will be sure to be rewarded. Trackback:
