Following the Bangor Trail(ish)
by Geo  25 Jul 2010
Did this on the way to Slieve Carr on 24 07 10. Started by parking at Letterkeen Wood at F9765805083 F. Walked South for a couple hundred metres then followed the Western Way/Bangor Trail markers to the right and then on to the bothy where there's an info board describing the Letterkeen Loop/Western Way/Bangor Trail on which you are on all three at this point. We went across the very sturdy bridge and followed the Bangor trail west on a rough track until we came to a junction where the Bangor Trail continues forward and the Letterkeen Loop goes right. At this point we followed the Trail straight ahead for about 200metres passing the corner of the forest then went right off the trail and followed a bearing for the summit uphill. Two hours from the car and a small pile of stones seems to mark the possible summit although I took my GPS reading some 20metres away where the highest point (it seemed) was! We had no views as the cloud surrounded us and the Atlantic was hellbent on making sure we were soaked in the drizzle/mist. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/784/comment/5969/
