Small top on an interesting ridge
by paulocon  31 Oct 2011
Passed over the Foxes Rock as part of a trail run across the ridge running from Long Womans Grave over to Slieve Foye. Very interesting terrain with interesting rock formations scattered all along the route. Once more, the mist had also decided to hit the hills on a Saturday morning so I can't comment on the views.
