I tackled Foxes Rock and Ravens Rock on a warm Saturday in May as part of trip by bike and on foot. I had climbed Slieve Foye and Clermont Carn before, so this was a mopping-up operation to bag the minor peaks in the range. Setting out from Newry Station, I took the road along the canal and then Newry River as far as Cornamucklagh, where I branched off on the high road through Bavan and Tullaghomeath, up to the Windy Gap or Bearnas Bó Cuailnge and locked my bike near the Long Woman's Grave, just south of the gap. It wasn't long before I was enjoying my lunch on Foxes Rock with a magnificent view across Carlingford Lough towards Warrenpoint and Rostrevor. I chatted to another walker, who also happened to have started by pedal power. He'd cycled out from Dundalk to Ballymakellett and was heading back via Carnawaddy. I left Foxes Rock, heading for Ravens Rock. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/808/comment/3803/
