Crawfords bridge to Ballygawley

On the minor road to the north west of Slievemores summit, at H586618 A, a track leaves the road and starts to climb up the hill, at the first fork keep left. At around H592618 B, the map shows the track ending, there is however a faint continuing track that leads to the summit track, coming in from the east. Or you could just walk up hill through some minor peat cuttings, directly to the summit. Either way it doesn't take long to attain the summit, the actual spot height lys a few metres from the concrete blocks, mentioned in the previous comments.

Whilst climbing Slievemore, I met a large group who had run over the hill, from the Ballygawley direction. So I decided to descend that way, in the hope of pint before the journey home. I walked across the summit area in a south west direction and picked up a track at H591612 C, following this down hill, past a car wreck, to a forest edge, turning left here along an overgrown track, after several minutes pushing past some undergrowth to arrive at a good lane beside a deserted farm house, H593610 D. This leads down hill and joins a road at H596603 E. From here minor roads lead to the A5 (H605588 F), and unless you have the time to take a very circuitous route, a short stretch along the A5 is unavoidable, luckily, there is a wide grass verge to walk along till the access road to Ballygawley at H618580 G.

If climbing this hill via public transport (Ulsterbus Belfast - Omagh service passes right by it), beware the Goldline express only stops in Ballygawley and Crawfords bridge (H514645 H), giving a 18.9 km walk from one stop to the other, over the hill. Linkback:
