Picture: E to W track on the south slope of the hill
Found! the lost track across the hill
by Harry Goodman  7 Jul 2011
On 6 July 2011 on my way home from Donegal I parked off road at C2354704811 J and walked SE along the road to to a good track on the left C2365804722 B which I followed along to a locked metal barrier gate into the forest. At this point I saw public notices indicating the land appeared to be reserved for "Raphoe Gun Club Members Only". Some way further along C2384805383 KI took Simon 3's advice and headed due E into trackless undergrowth of gorse and small pine trees, with the more mature forest on my left. After about 250 metres of wending my way through and around this jumbled vegitation I emerged out on the open hillside C2404905010 D. The top of the hill lay some 250 metres further along on a prominent little knoll crowned by a couple of small bushy trees C2429105065 H. Views W and N to the Bluestacks and Derryveagh Mts were excellent. On top there is clear evidence of an old cairn of stones in and around the tree roots. Relaxing in the sunshine I noticed an E to W fence running across the hillside some 75 metres to the S of the top. On closer inspection it proved to be one side of a double fence bounding an old path/track C2430104987 G which corresponded to the "lost" and "forgotten track" shown on the OSI Sheet 6. It is still there! Walking the short distance back E to the crest confirmed it could be traced some way along down into the forest but I did not have time to explore its limits any further in that direction. Rather I decided to follow the track W. Where it became too boggy or was blocked by assorted shrubbery I followed it down along open ground to the left. Apart from a couple of cross fences and a scramble through a small patch of prickly whin bushes its line was clear to follow down to a small field. Once there a path could be followed along the right side of the field to C2390305009 F where the boundry fence of the old track was finally lost into the forest, some 150 metres short of the original access track! At this point I turned left and made easy progress SW to C2377304843 E where an old metal farm gate gave me access to the original track. From here it was a short walk back to the car. This short unexpected loop walk of only 2.3k took an hour and a half due to my wandering about at the top and other stops but could easily be done in an hour or less. Trackback:
