This walk was carried out over two days with an overnight in the (then) dilapidated Bangor Trail shed on the trail below Slieve Carr. It makes use of the Bangor Trail before branching off to visit Nephin Beg South Top and Nephin Beg. It then descends back to the Trail and the shed. Day two is a hike up one of Irelands most remote summits, Slieve Carr. Return to the shed and follow the Bangor Trail all the way back to the starting point. NOTE - a long walk that makes use of a very wet and sometimes indistinguishable trail through the bog. The shed was practically unusable in August 2010, and may be either utterly ruined or refurbished now. Water can be sourced from the semi-waterfall/stream that crosses the Trail after descending from the lakes situated in the col between Nephin Beg and Slieve Carr. A long walk that gives plenty of time for reflection and isolation.
