This track shows a possible way up Slieve Carr starting from the East. It is considerably shorter than many routes using the Bangor Erris trail. This track is uploaded by way of example as to what can be done. It can and should be improved on.
Park at around F9759 1664. Ask permission at the house at F 9657 1602. Follow a forest road over a modern bridge into the forest. The clockwise route shown used a path beside a fence that eventually emerges from the forest near a convenient SE ridge of the summit, however it may be better to go further on the road to the vicinity of a lake at around F945145 from which a fence stretches in the direction of the summit.
The direct route to the summit is probably unwise however by contouring south from where you emerge from the forest the route ascent up the SE spur shown in the track can be used.
